Portland Pride

 
Portland takes its Pride seriously, with the Portland Pride events taking up a solid week. The week leading up to the Parade and Festival is full of events. Highlights: queer art exhibitions, parties, and other celebratory events.

The Portland Pride Waterfront Festival starts on Saturday at the end of Portland Pride. Nearly 200 local, regional and national organizations and businesses fill Waterfront Park to aid in festivities.

The Festival continues on Sunday after the Parade. Portland is a well-attended pride, with special attention paid to the local LGBTQ+ youth community. It's community-driven, and dedicated to the message that “it gets better.”
