Visitor Information / Tampa Pride 2016

After a tremendous first year, Tampa Pride 2016 makes its permanent home during the last weekend in March. Events will kick off in August, culminating in the parade and street festival on Saturday March 26, 2016. This year’s parade and street festival will be bigger and better than 2015. We’ll have capacity for over 80% additional parade floats and entries, as well as over 80% more booths. We’ll also feature added stages and entertainment for your viewing pleasure!

With this year’s Supreme Court victory in the fight for marriage equality, we’ll have plenty to celebrate. But there’s also much work to be done. From fighting housing discrimination to fighting job discrimination to fighting attempts to legalize discrimination across the board under the misnomer of religious freedom: we can’t let up. We must capitalize on our gains, while helping GLBTA you who have been abandoned on the street and helping discrimination victims wherever they exist.

In 2016 we’ll be the first Pride celebration in the U. S.! Stay tuned to our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed to get all the information you’ll need to celebrate #TampaPride2016. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Donation / Tampa Pride 2016

Tampa Pride is a celebration of all of the obstacles our community has overcome throughout our history. It is our chance to celebrate being free of persecution, persecution that still plagues GLBTA people all around the world. While we all like the event, it’s costly to make it special! That’s where you come in. Make your tax deductible donation today, and ensure Tampa Pride continues for many years to come.

Schedule / Tampa Pride 2016

#TampaPride2016 will be bigger than ever (well at least bigger and better than last year!) Our Street Festival will feature 80% more room for community participation. Our Parade will also be 80% bigger, with more rooms for bands, floats, horses, music and much more. But that’s not all…

The year starts in August with our #TampaPride2016 Launch Party. Then we’ll be holding bingo fund raisers throughout the fall and winter at Hamburger Mary’s Ybor.

Our pride season begins with our 2016 Grand Marshals Gala in February, followed by our VIP Sponsors Gala on Thursday March 24th. On Friday March 25th sponsor bars across Tampa will be celebrating Tampa Pride. Then on Saturday March 26th the Street Festival and Entertainment start at 10AM, followed by the Parade step off at 1PM. Then Saturday night sponsor bars will feature special entertainment of all kinds. On Sunday March 27th, we’ll have our official Sunday Pride T‐dance.
