Pridefest 2017 - Capital City Pride

The annual Pride Festival celebration, held the second weekend in June every summer. Our mission is to promote acceptance, tolerance, and understanding of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community through education, programming, and visibility.

We accomplish this by promoting a healthy community image and awareness, creating a positive public education and discourse, and developing an effective community collaboration in which our collective resources can be utilized.

Pride weekend would not be possible if it weren't for the support of the Des Moines metro area community and dedicated volunteers who give their time and energy in making sure that each year’s event is something for everyone to enjoy!
