About the Reno Gay Pride Festival
The Reno Gay Pride Festival celebrates diversity and equality with its 18th 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.
