Saturday2019

Each year in June, The PRIDE Center of Maryland kicks off Pride Month in celebration of Baltimore’s vibrant Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) community that culminates into Pride Weekend. Baltimore Pride Weekend 2019 consists of a three-day celebration, that kicks off with Twilight on the Terrace on Friday June 14 followed with the block party and legendary parade on Saturday and Sunday’s festival at Druid Hill Park. Baltimore Pride is now in its 44th year! Last year this celebration was attended by over 30,000 individuals. Want to learn more about Baltimore PRIDE and The PRIDE Center of Maryland in general?
