No. PrideFest is a free event put on by generous donors in our community. VIP tickets are available to those who wish but are not required.
MidMo PrideFest will be located at Rose Music Hall. The street festival will be on Park, Orr and St. James streets and the entertainment will be in Rose Park. The address to Rose Music Hall is 1013 Park Ave. Columbia, Missouri.
Just register as a vendor online at the tab above. Please note we have only a limited number of booth spaces, and they often fill up quickly.
There will be parking all around downtown. There are parking garages on Cherry and 8th, Hitt and Locust, and there is some metered parking in the garage at The Broadway. There will be parking at Eighth & Walnut, Eighth & Cherry, Sixth & Cherry, Tenth & Cherry, Fifth and Walnut, Short Street (The Broadway).
We certainly hope that Pride is your cheat day! We will have food choices from a variety of vendors. Drinks are provided by Rose and can be purchased at the bar or at the drink stands in the park.
No outside food or drink will be permitted into the festival
We’d love to have you. Learn more about how you can volunteer by clicking the volunteer page in the navigation menu.
Some vendors are set up to take credit cards, and some aren’t. PrideFest will take credit cards for merchandise purchases, and Rose accepts cards at the bar. It’s a good idea to bring cash just in case. You never know what you can’t resist to take home with you.

Yes! We strive to make our festival inclusive to people of all ages. There will be a kids zone with activities, a bounce house, and a teen lounge. Please be advised that after 8pm, we will include Muse Pole Fitness and local burlesque performers.
Yes! ADA parking has been donated to us. You can access it by entering Park Ave. via Rogers. Street parking has been reserved for this purpose. This parking does require a handicap permit.
While we love pets, PrideFest is not a good place to bring them. Please leave them in their cozy beds and air conditioning at home. It is often quite hot at Pride! Service pets are welcome.
PrideFest will go on rain or shine, unless the rain is more like a scene out of The Wizard of Oz. Being September in Missouri, the weather will definitely be a gamble, but hopefully cooler than in previous years!
Yes! Check out The Broadway or The Tiger Hotel. Both hotels have supported us and donated to PrideFest. We love to give them business!
There will be an ATM at the information booth this year. There are also various ATM’s located around the downtown area.
