The Silicon Valley Pride Parade and Festival kicks off with a Transgender and Friends Rally followed by a Night Festival in a 70's Disco theme to commemorate 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. This event has been added to our other Silicon Valley Pride kickoff activities on August 25th, and is free of charge. The rally will be held at the Plaza de Cesar Chavez with doors opening at 4 p.m. Speakers and performers will take the stage at 5 p.m. While this event is open to everyone, it is uniquely focused on the transgender and gender non-binary members of our community as well as their allies and friends. Please come join us as we celebrate our Transgender and Friends community. For the 4th time in 44 years, we are holding an evening festival that runs into the darkness of night. The theme is a disco 70's Disco theme to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riot. We start up again on Sunday morning August 25th at 10:00 a.m. with our parade along Market Street from Julian Street and ends at the main entrance of the festival. Festival grounds open once again after the parade ends to the excitement of dance performers, talented artists and the music of live bands. Main Stage and Hey Girl Stage entertainment will be announced in August.
