The entrance to Queer/Pride Festival is on 11th Ave & Pine St. You may only enter and re-enter through this main festival gate. Please note this is the opposite side of the festival footprint than last year.

When approaching the festival there will be multiple lines...

If you have exchanged your tickets for a wristband, go straight to the General Admission or VIP Entrance.

If you have your pre-purchased ticket but have not exchanged for a wristband, go to Registration.

If you do not have a ticket or wristband, go to Ticket Sale lines at Registration.

Registration is next to the festival entrance. After exchange or purchase, continue through to entrance.

  • We will accept mobile or printed tickets.

  • Please have a valid and current ID to enter and re-enter the festival. 21+.

  • All bags will be searched before entry and re-entry.

  • Please note that Queer/Pride is NOT responsible for lost or damaged wristbands and we will NOT replace wristbands.
