The Arlington Pride Festival was Arlington's premiere event of the 2022 Summer roster and we are back for 2023!
In 2022, The Arlington Pride Festival was Arlington Inaugural pride celebration, and took place on June 25th at the Rosslyn Gateway Park.
Again, The Arlington Pride Festival is a FREE event with a simple but impactful message, "Moving Forward Together." This reminds us of the importance of working together to make our community stronger.
In 2022 we anticipated ~3,000 attendees for The Arlington Pride Festival. However, Arlington really came out to show there pride, and we ended up welcoming over 5,000 attendees throughout the day!
Through social media campaigns, print advertisements, and grass-roots marketing, we anticipate over 7,000 attendees from in & around Arlington for our 2023 Festival.
Many distinguished Senators, County officials & representatives came out to support Arlington Pride. From Katie Cristol (2022 Honorable Chairperson of the Arlington County board) giving the Formal Proclamation of the day, to the Arlington Police & Fire Departments LGBTQIA+ ERGs showing support.
We are working with the elected 2023 Arlington County Board officials to continue our partnership and their involvement in The Arlington Pride Festival.
Like with many Festivals, sponsors can make the difference when it come to achieving our goals for our community. We are honored to have partnered with our amazing 2022 Sponsors for Arlington's 1st Pride Festival. Their partnerships allowed them to have invaluable engagement to a diverse community within Arlington.
