  • Overview

    Capital City Pride is proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary on June 9-10, 2018 with what is sure to be the biggest and best Pride Fest Des Moines has ever seen! This year’s event is especially important as it offers a chance for the Des Moines community, LGBTQ people, and allies to come together to show unity while celebrating the fantastic culture and successes that have been achieved throughout the last four decades.

    The 2018 Pride Fest will once again take place in the Historic East Village of downtown Des Moines with the Pride Parade continuing the tradition of making its scenic route from the Statehouse and traveling west alongside East Locust Street. A variety of exciting entertainment options as well as a complete schedule of the weekend’s activities will be announced later this spring. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are also available for CCP’s 2018 Pride Fest and more information may be found by clicking here.

    Mark your calendars for June 9th - 10th and get ready to celebrate!
