Tacoma Pride is going to look different in 2020. Rainbow Center will not hold a street festival to celebrate Tacoma Pride in 2020. Instead we will facilitate a community full of Pride on Saturday July 11th and we want you to join us.


Normally, we are joined by over 100 supportive organizations and businesses at Tacoma Pride. In 2020, we are offering a different way for partners to participate in Tacoma Pride – as Points of Pride. Each Point of Pride will offer a special promotion or activity in recognition of Tacoma Pride. 2020 Tacoma Pride is an opportunity for both LGBTQ visibility and to support local organizations and businesses.  We hope that this year’s celebration highlights how the LGBTQ community is woven into the fabric of Tacoma and our region. We are part of every community, every neighborhood, and every family.

The series of event that make up the Tacoma Pride Festival will take place through the month of July. Events may be scaled down or adjusted in some way. We will provide updated information as it becomes available on this website and social media. These events also offer the chance to support local organizations and business who need us now.
