“Building Bridges, Building Community”
MISSION STATEMENT: Pride St. Charles will promote equality within St. Charles County and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community through positive events, support, education, and resources.
In 2015, we held the first ever LGBTQ Festival in St. Charles County. Originally planned to be a small picnic, word spread throughout the community and suddenly became a festival that attracted over 3500 attendees and over 100 exhibitors. We are proud and excited to say that our second annual festival on June 18, 2016 was another huge success doubling first year attendance numbers!
We hope that this festival allows an opportunity for the communities outside of the immediate St. Louis region to join together in celebration of diversity in an area that has needed this for so long.
It is now with the greatest excitement that we announce that our 3rd Annual Festival will be held at Frontier Park in Historic Downtown St. Charles, MO!
We hope to see you at one of our public planning meetings and at the Pride St. Charles Festival on June 17, 2017!
Feel free to contact us regarding any questions, comments, or just to say hi! We look forward to hearing from you!
