Pensacola Beach Memorial Day Weekend Gay Party.
Every memorial day weekend in Pensacola Beach, Florida the beach opens it doors to upwards of 200,000 LGBT party goers. By day all the gays will be lining the beach soaking in the sun and meeting all the boys.
Florida’s westernmost city, Pensacola is near the tip of the state’s northwest panhandle. The area has developed an increased gay following over the years, and furthermore, in late May, during Memorial Day weekend, Pensacola is the site of one of the nation’s larger GLBT gatherings, comprising an array of boisterous and fun parties.
Gay people from all over the US and beyond arrive early on the beach! It is a tradition to try and outdo the other beach tents along the seafront with elaborate decorations, or music or free drinks. The line up of tents extends over a 1.5 mile span and soon this becomes a runway of the latest speedo trends and costumes. Think of it as if gays hosted spring break.
The Portofino Hotel and Resort is the official host hotel. The hotel is made up of 5 towers each with 20 floors each boasting 2-4 bedroom condo units. If this event were the Olympics this resort would be the Olympic village. Every night Portofino throws an epic pool party as a pregame to the night complete with a dj and bars.
As the night settles in, partygoers head for the weekend circuit party organised by Johnny Chisolm. The weekend event the hottest DJs and acts.
Events kick off with a Meet and Mingle followed by theme nights such as GLOW, WAVE and BEACHBALL!
Pensacola’s two LGBT night clubs – the Roundup and Cabaret – always have special events and entertainment that weekend, as do many of the mainstream establishments. In recent years, Capt’n Fun Beach Club and Flounder’s Chowder House on Pensacola Beach have served as hubs of much of the Memorial Day weekend fun.
Just steps from downtown’s beautiful Seville Square and adjacent to the historic Saenger Theatre, The Cabaret (101 S. Jefferson St.) is sophisticated but welcoming, a cheerful spot for gay men, lesbians, and friends to congregate during daily happy hours (3 until 8 p.m.), during the Friday gallery nights, before or after a show at the Saenger, or during the popular karaoke events on Monday and Thursday evenings.
Upwards of 200,000 revelers attend the various Pensacola Gay Memorial Day LGBT events in Pensacola Beach, with especially strong attendance from the Atlanta, New Orleans, Jacksonville, and Orlando areas.
