PrideFest Milwaukee to take place June 9-11

PrideFest Milwaukee will happen at Henry W. Maier Festival Park on June 9, 10 and 11. 

Randy Rainbow, political commentator, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the weekend. 

Activist Jim Obergefell will be the keynote speaker. In 2015, Obergefell's landmark Supreme Court case resulted in a national victory for marriage equality. As a purposeful activist, Obergefell is dedicated to the fight for equality not just for the LGBTQ community, but for civil rights for all. He encourages and empowers audiences to stand by their beliefs -- and prove that love always wins.  

We are also pleased to welcome Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. County Executive Abele has been a committed supporter of the LGBTQ community throughout his personal and professional life.  

Opening ceremonies begin at 3:00 PM sharp in the PrideFest Milwaukee Dance Pavilion on June 9 and will end at 4:00 PM. Reentry hand stamps will only be offered between 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM.

Three-day weekend passes to PrideFest Milwaukee 2017 include access to all shows, on all stages, all weekend long and are $35 through June 8.
