Austin Gay Pride 2016
Not only is Austin the state capital of the Lone Star State, it’s also one of the most progressive and gay-friendly cities in the southern United States. So it’s only fitting that this fast-growing city’s Austin Gay Pride Festival and Parade continues to grow in attendance and popularity.
The event is a combination of what used to be two different but concurrent events, the Pride of Texas Festival and the Austin Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Pride Parade, which combined forces a few years ago to create one all-inclusive, popular event.
Austin Gay Pride takes place at the end of August – the dates of Austin Pride Week are August 20 through August 28, 2016, with the Austin Pride Festival and Parade taking place on August 27, 2016.
