Pride in the Park 2021
Pride in the Park Chicago is a two day event running from 3pm to 10pm each night as part of the annual Chicago Pride festival.
Pride in the Park celebrates LGBTQ pride in both Windy City and the Midwest at the Petrillo Bandshell in downtown’s scenic Grant Park and is the final party in a series of month long events. Stay close to the event, check out the top 10 hotels by the park.
The park features two stage areas with top national and local music headliners, plus an impressive deejay roster presented by Circuit MOM Productions! Expect exceptional production values, outrageous outfits, drag kings and queens, world famous DJs, and that signature electric house music and circuit party energy that only CircuitMOM can deliver.
Pride in the Park will also feature plenty of fantastic food and merchandise vendors.
Additionally, in order to join together with another community activity on Pride weekend, the awards ceremony for Pride Bowl XIII will be held at the festival. Pride Bowl is an LGBTQ+ flag football tournament played on Chicago’s lakefront as part of Pride weekend. The tournament hosts over 600 athletes, officials, and volunteers from across the United States and Canada. Pride Bowl features every level of athlete from ‘weekend warrior’ to NFL veteran. The goal of the tournament is to provide a safe, inclusive environment and to celebrate the best of Chicago Pride.
Grammy winning and “Godfather of EDM” Tiësto will be headlining alongside the Queen of Funk and Icon, Chaka Khan. Gryffin will be performing an energetic and remarkable DJ set. Australian Betty Who, most known for “I Love You Always Forever”, will be coming back to the windy city. She has also previously played during Pride week in Chicago and Mamby on the Beach. House DJ Derrick Carter and award-winning producer Tracy Young will bring the beats as well.
Some of RuPaul’s Drag Race most lovable contestants from near and far will be performing as well! Fresh off the show, Denali Foxx will be bringing a crowd to the stage. The drag superstar has the capabilities to put on one of the best shows given her insane ice skating talent and lip synch experience. Her drag mother, Chamilla Foxx, will hopefully jump on stage with Denali at some point. Alyssa Edwards, from Season 5, who is most known for her personality and choreography will be joining them. The Vixen is also going to give us one hell of a show. Chicago’s own female impersonator Traci Ross will bring the entertainment to all attendees.
