About the Reno Gay Pride Festival

The Reno Gay Pride Festival celebrates diversity and equality with its 17th annual event at downtown Reno's Wingfield Park. While the event's activities emphasize the gay and lesbian community, and some are for adults only, everyone is invited to enjoy the entertainment at Wingfield Park.

The 2013 Reno Gay Pride Festival will be on August 17, 2013, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. All day festival and entertainment tickets are $5.
