"2022 Yakima Pride Festival & Parade
A community event proudly produced by Yakima Pride and its annual partners!
We need community and connection more than ever and allowing us to both connect and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community’s resilience in the face of this pandemic and the true spirit of Pride.
In 2020 and 2021, the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 meant that most PRIDE celebrations did not take place during June as planned or canceled altogether.
Whether you are a returning guest or coming for the first time, it is a magical experience like no other!
Please join us; invite your friends and family to proudly celebrate PRIDE and share this beautiful event in our amazing community! #YakimaPride 🏳️‍🌈
