Pride Bigger Than Texas 2019 Festival and Parade

It’s the most colorful time of the year again, so break out your rainbows and celebrate everything Pride with San Antonio’s smorgasbord of events. The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots makes this year’s Pride particularly important, especially in the face of continuing discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community by the current presidential administration. Things will kick into high gear on June 29 for the annual “Pride Bigger Than Texas” Festival and Parade, hosted by Pride San Antonio. In honor of the Stonewall anniversary, this year’s theme is “Remember. Honor. Educate.” The festivities start in Crockett Park at 11 a.m. with entertainers on deck including Brian Justin Crum, Drowning Mona, Luciana, Sizzy Rocket, Sandra Valls, Patsy Torrres and Bidi Bidi Banda. At 3 p.m., you’ll have to choose between body slams and the pinnacle of romance, because Pride Championship Wrestling has been scheduled at the same time as the “We All Love the Same” mass wedding — so plan accordingly. The festival winds down at 7 p.m., but you can pop over to The Strip on N. Main for the official afterparty, which will run all the way until 3 a.m. (free, 1416-1503 N. Main Ave.) If you want to stick around Crockett Park for the parade, you can also catch the Running of the Queens High Heel Race at 8:45 p.m. right before the action begins at 9. Plus, there’ll be some post-parade fireworks.

“Comfort Cafe is one of my favorite spots in San Antonio! I highly recommend joining the Yelp Waitlist early before you head over, because it's such a popular place for brunch on the weekends… The pancakes are huge but they are so fluffy and tasty… Don't skip out on the hashbrown casserole either, I mean what's better than potato, cheese, and bacon?” - Elite Yelper Sarah G
