Festival-goer's FAQ

Do you have a good hotel recommendation?

Yes! Check out The Broadway or The Tiger Hotel. Both hotels have supported us and donated to PrideFest. We love to give them business!

Will there be a rain date?

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!

Can i bring my pet?

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.

Will there be ada parking?

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.

Is the festival family friendly?

Yes! We strive to make our festival inclusive to people of all ages. There will be a kids zone with activities and a teen lounge. Please be advised that after 8pm, we will include Muse Pole Fitness and local burlesque performers.

Do I have to be LGBTQIA+ to attend?

No. Supporters and allies of our community are crucial and always welcome.

Do you take credit cards?

The event itself is free. If you would like to make purchases from our vendors, payment might be required. 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.

Can I volunteer?

We’d love to have you. Learn more about how you can volunteer by clicking the volunteer page in the navigation menu.

Can I bring my own food or drink?

No outside food or drink will be permitted into the festival.

Will there be food and beverages?

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.
