Stonewall Pride Wilton Manors Street Festival
Wilton Manors signature event, the Wilton Manors Stonewall Festival, is held every year in June. This is a community-wide event that draws a diverse crowd of approximately 20,000 – 30,000 individuals and families each year. The parade, street vendors, and live performances offer something for everyone and the city is proud to host this celebration each year.
The parade is the main attraction of the festival. Thousands come out to watch floats and groups as they strut their stuff down Wilton Drive.
The parade begins at 3:00 pm and lasts for an hour and a half.
In addition to the stages (north at the Manor) which will be featuring local performers and DJ’s throughout the day, we are pleased to announce that iHeartRadio will have two radio stations that will be present on the Drive.
With over 100 vendors and exhibitors, and food vendors and trucks, the Festival marketplace is always a fun way to spend the afternoon. Several of the area nonprofits and governmental agencies take part and provide a wide range of information and services to attendees. Stonewall Event & Marketplace opens at 3:00 PM
