Downtown Elgin, IL


Our goal with ELGbtq+ and Elgin Pride is to create a safe, welcoming environment for all lgbtqia+ folx and allies in the area to come together and celebrate each other and create unity within the community.

Our mission is to create family-friendly, accessible events everyone can attend, while prioritizing queer voices in and around the Elgin, IL area.

We are very excited to be working on bringing the first Pride Parade and Festival to Elgin, Illinois!  Many surrounding suburbs have been doing Pride festivals for the last few years with great success and thousands in attendance.  We are currently seeking sponsors, donations, and vendors for the festival, as well as groups interested in participating in the parade.  Click here for more info and to help celebrate and uplift our local community with us!
