San Antonio celebrates Pride in late June with its Pride San Antonio celebration, one of several Pride events held in the city throughout the year. The Pride San Antonio Bigger Than Texas Parade and Festival takes place this year on Saturday, June 30, 2018.

San Antonio Pride Festival and Parade Details

The festivities take place at Crockett Park, by the city's popular gay-bar strip at  N. Main Avenue and W. Laurel Street, a short drive north of downtown, and runs throughout the day, from 11 am until 7 pm, with the night parade taking place that evening at 9 pm. 

Admission to the festival is $10 for ages 13 and up and free for kids 12 and under. 

Other events during ​San Antonio Gay Pride include a Rainbow Dash and 1-mile run at 8 pm, and the always-entertaining High Heel Race at 8:45 pm. 

Tips for Parade and Festival Goers

Expect that nearby gay-friendly and popular restaurants, hotels, and shops will be extra busy during this time, and catering heavily to LGBT visitors. Check local sites such as Q San Antonio, and the excellent ​GLBT section of the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau.
