After a momentous return to an in-person march and festival in 2022, we continue our efforts to ensure Northeast Ohio is afforded a Pride event that not only celebrates our LGBTQ+ community, but also advocates for the equitable and just treatment for ALL in our community as well.
One of the things that makes Cleveland such a great place to be is its great diversity of people, whether it be of ethnic background or sexual orientation. To that end, Cleveland Pride, Inc. and the LGBT Cleveland Community Center join for an annual event celebrating our city’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community – Pride in the CLE.
More Than a March
Pride in the CLE's signature event is a march that aims to show off our community's strength and unity. Visitors are encouraged to come to the march being their authentic selves. Following the kick-off march, the event turns into a bustling all-day festival featuring a diverse array of vendors - areas of interest include healthcare, activism, social groups and nonprofits - as well as a robust slate of music, entertainment and DJs.
The Celebration Never Stops
In addition to the many amazing daytime festivities, expect a variety of nighttime events located in neighborhoods and indoor venues throughout the city.
