Shades of Pride Festival: A LGBTQIA+ Juneteenth Celebration

Jun 14, 2024 – Jun 15, 2024

St. Pete Pride's Shade of Pride is back with a two-day festival on June 14th & 15th at The Factory!

This year's Shades of Pride Festival will celebrate the history of Juneteenth while showcasing the Art & Qulture of our Black and Brown LGBTQ+ siblings. Join us to learn more about the deep impact of Black and Brown Qulture on the LGBTQ+ community as a whole and its deep roots in the evolution of Pride.

The Shades of Pride Festival at The Factory will host many special guests and a fully packed event schedule. Featuring the very popular Shade vs. Pride Poetry Slam where 20 individuals will go to war with words for a $3,000 prize, and the legendary Honors Ball where recognized individuals will be honored with awards to pay homage to various communities of black culture. View the entire scheduled lineup.

This event purposefully centers the voices of the Black and Brown LGBTQ+ community by uplifting their experiences through collaboration, local entertainment and vendors from within the community.

This is an 18+ event and free to attend.

Consider using ride shares or taking public transportation during Pride month. See PSTA schedules and maps. If you decide to drive, plan ahead for parking in St. Pete.
