LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas PRIDE will be chock full of events during the first week of October, from the annual PRIDE parade to a hike and a pool party.

Las Vegas PRIDE first began 39 years ago, when a series of events was held at the University of Las Vegas, Nevada in May and June of 1983. Since then, with the exception of a few years, Las Vegas PRIDE events have been held every year.

Originally PRIDE events were held in June, but due to hot weather, they have been held in October since 2016. For more on the history of Las Vegas PRIDE, check out their website.

“We are so excited for the 2022 Las Vegas PRIDE Parade Downtown and to be back at Craig Ranch Park for the PRIDE Festival,” said Las Vegas PRIDE Board President Brady McGill. “This year’s theme, Beautiful Tomorrow, speaks to the resilience of the LGBTQ+ community and the bright future we all have in Las Vegas.”
