San Francisco Pride
More than one million people will descend on San Francisco during the Pride weekend. With the population of the city doubling in size it can be, well, a challenge to navigate the maze of streets, hills, routes and events. The city explodes into a rainbow burst of music, dancing and excitement for Pride. Hundreds of thousands of people line the streets and descend on the annual downtown parade and festival making it the largest LGBT celebration in the country. The two-day bash takes place in front of City Hall at Civic Center Plaza — the same spot where Harvey Milk addressed the crowd in 1978 during “Gay Freedom Day.”
Pride features not only a main stage with music, competitions and comedy but 300+ exhibitors and more than 20 community-run stages. These include the Faerie Freedom Village, with a glitter gateway of live cabaret and avant-garde artists, a Leather Alley “carnival” to get schooled on S&M, the Cheer San Francisco stage with high-flying cheerleader stunts, and a chance to get your same-sex two-steppin’ in at the Country-Western Dance Corral.
San Francisco Pride Parade
- Returns 2022 The massive annual parade down Market Street is the main highlight of Pride. Expect over 200 parade contingents and floats with tons of fabulous eye candy representing a huge range of causes and beliefs including the 400+ extremely loud (and proud) Dykes on Bikes motorcycle group.
- The parade kicks off Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at Market and Beale and ends at Eighth Street near the Civic Center area.
- Pride is much more than just the Civic Center celebration. There’s also a fun cluster of gay-friendly events bubbling up around San Francisco all month.
San Francisco Pride Festival
- You can’t miss the day-long Pride Festival at Civic Center on the Saturday no matter how little sleep you had the night before. It’s like a gay theme park, and braving (or reveling in) the crowds is worth it for this quintessential celebration of our history and liberation.
The pinnacle of official Pride celebrations. It’s going to be packed tight and of epic proportions. If you want to experience the circuit party realness of San Francisco Pride, this is your party.
Where to Stay?
San Francisco is split into several areas but the main 2 are The Castro and Soma, with Soma being the area the where you will find Folsom Street, and most of the leather and fetish bars. See our two maps below for details on the closest bars and clubs in each neighbourhood. Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action.
Other popular neighbourhoods include Mission District. As the modern hub of San Francisco’s most vibrant district, Valencia Street is home to some of the city’s hottest destination eateries, funky independent shops, most crowded watering holes, and eye-popping murals.
If you want to be close to all the tourist attractions and stay in some of the best hotels in the city, then we recommend the downtown/union square district.
