Miami Beach Pride returns for its 16th anniversary with events running from April 2 – April 14, 2024. What originally began as a parade down Ocean Drive has now transformed into programming spanning 12 days that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. The festivities include lavish floats, a queer art showcase designed to support local artists, social justice night as the community faces increasing legislative attacks, celebrity guests of honour, live performances, and much more.

This year’s 2-day festival has grown tremendously and promises to be the biggest and best iteration of Miami Beach Pride to date. To honour the journey of the LGBTQ+ community, the 2024 festival theme, Pride. Progress. Perseverance., will highlight the community’s past and celebrate a brighter collective future.

With over 12 days of exciting events, there is truly something for everyone and we have maintained our commitment to keep much of our programming free for the community to be as inclusive as possible,” says Bruce Horwich, Chairman of Miami Beach Pride. “Growing from a 15,000-person event in 2009 to now being one of the most celebrated Prides in the country with more than 170,000 attendees from all over the world, our goal is to honor our community all while having the message of unwavering resilience and uniqueness on full display along Miami Beach.”
