We are very excited to be working on bringing the first LGBTQ+ Pride March 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. Unfortunately, festival plans were started in 2019 and have had to be repeatedly postponed due to COVID-19, but we plan on coming back stronger than ever in 2023, and we hope you'll join us for a fantastic community celebration!
We are planning a PRIDE weekend packed with events. Saturday's events will include a family-friendly LGBTQ+ PRIDE parade followed by a festival with a vendor marketplace, live music, and more!

All of the festivities for the Elgin Pride Festival will be within walking distance of the Milwaukee District West (MD-W) Metra line and the Elgin Transportation Center for PACE buses. They are also accessible by bicycle via the Fox River Trail and bike lanes on both Chicago St & Highland Ave.
By highway, it is within a few minutes of the 31S exit on I-90.
