Miami Beach Pride will return September 10-19 with a roster of local events, entertainment, and the highly anticipated Festival and Parade September 18 and 19. Walk The Moon, Carson Kressley, Tracy Young, Alex Newell, Nitty Scott, and Ralphi Rosario are slated to headline the pop and Latin stages this year, as well as host other ticketed events during the celebration. Miami Beach Pride’s Festival and Parade are free and open to the public, but registration is strongly encouraged.
Miami Beach Pride’s theme and mantra is “One Love,” inspired by Bob Marley’s iconic song that encourages listeners to love themselves and others, while also paying tribute to the tropical surroundings.
“We believe that love has the power to unify us. By reinforcing solidarity and acceptance within our community and with our allies, we can truly begin to create more inclusive spaces that are representative of our amazing LGBTQ community. ” said Rich Walczak, executive director of Miami Beach Pride. “The foundation on which this week is built is the concept of self-acceptance and authenticity and why we want everyone to feel like they belong at our celebration this year.”
Miami Beach Pride will follow COVID-19 protocols and prevention measures for a safe and exciting festival. The organization will implement a campaign encouraging attendees to Stop The Spread and Register For Pride and the following updates to the events: social distancing, sanitizer stations and distribution, frequent disinfection, increased VIP tent sizes, and online registration. Free masks will also be available.
Miami Beach Pride’s online registration portal is available and will enable the organization to more effectively communicate any changes in local, state, and federal COVID-19 safety guidelines and increases the accuracy of their contact tracing program. The Independent Medical Group will also be onsite to distribute thousands of COVID-19 vaccinations completely free of charge. Vaccination facilities will be clearly marked on the festival grounds and open to all attendees.
Weekend VIP packages and tickets to Sweet Spot featuring Ultra Nate, Soak Pool Party, and Voguing Ball are now officially for sale on the website. For more information on events related to Pride as well as the latest programming, click here.
