Fort Lauderdale's popular Wilton Manors Stonewall Pride Festival, which was formerly known as Stonewall Street Festival and before that Stonewall Summer Pride, will take place on June 17, 2017. The festival is held in the small city of Wilton Manors, which many visitors to Fort Lauderdale know as the bustling hub of Broward County's gay nightlife, retail, and dining scene.

The festival typically kicks off early Saturday afternoon and includes performances (headlined last year by renowned pop group En Vogue) well into the evening and a marketplace featuring vendors selling arts, crafts and more, plus food trucks and frozen drink tents, and a Kids Zone.

 The festivities include the Stonewall Summer Pride Twilight Parade, which runs along Wilton drive at on Saturday evening.
