June 6, 2020 - June 5, 2021
Annually on the first Saturday of June | 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
To our community, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and everyone in between: Due to the rising concerns related to COVID-19 and our desire to protect our community, all events scheduled for Naples Pride, including the Miss Naples Pride Pageant and the Naples Pride Festival in June 2020 are being postponed. The situation is being monitored by the organization and the determination of when the events will be rescheduled are being assessed. More information will be provided at a later date in regard to the postponement of these events. We wish everyone in our community to remain healthy, safe, and happy, and look forward to celebrating the bonds of our community once this crisis has been averted.
Naples Pride celebrates diversity and unity, educates the community on LGBTQ issues to promote equal rights for all. This all- inclusive, family-friendly and open to the public event will combine entertainers, speakers, musicians, performers, vendors, exhibitors, kids activities, food and drinks for a day of fun and celebration in the name of equality. The event will feature music spun by crowd favorite DJ Kooshie and the dynamic MC Liquid will emcee the event.
Widespread community involvement and support have made Naples Pride Fest, a resounding success with over 5000 attendees every year. As a result our organization established an emergency fund to benefit in need LGBTQ individuals Collier County. The Naples Pride mission is to unite and empower the LGBTQ community of Collier County and to provide emergency support for those in crisis. Naples Pride does this by offering support to our local LGBTQ community in areas such as counseling, housing, wellness, employment, legal and advocacy. A $5 entry donation as well as funds raised during the event, combined with contributions from sponsors, will support Naples Pride in its ongoing efforts. Naples Pride can only achieve its goal of helping others with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community, local businesses and corporate sponsors.
