June | Chicago, IL
Chicago's Pride celebration consists of a full month of festivities and events, culminating with the annual Chicago Pride Parade, which traditionally takes place the last Sunday of June. The Pride festival takes place along North Halsted St. in the North Side neighborhood colloquially referred to a ‘Boystown’ the weekend prior to the parade. Pride in the Park, an outdoor music festival in Chicago’s historic Grant Park, made its debut in 2019. The coronavirus pandemic brought all those plans to a halt in 2020 and 2021, but it's back this year!
