San Antonio celebrates Pride in early July 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 July 2, 2016.

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.

Other events during San Antonio Gay Pride on July 2 include a Rainbow Dash and 1-mile run at 8 pm, and the always-entertaining High Heel Race at 8:45 pm. 

San Antonio Gay Resources

Expect that gay-popular restaurants, hotels, and shops will be extra busy during this busy time, and catering heavily to LGBT visitors. Check local gay media, such as Q San Antonio, for details, and also check out the excellent GLBT section of the website produced by the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau.
