Welcome to Santa Cruz Pride!

Every first Sunday in June, the Santa Cruz County Community joins with the voices of LGBTQ communities and their allies around the world in celebration of Pride Month. The Santa Cruz Pride Parade & Festival has been made possible for 40+ years because of the - often brave - time, talent, and treasure contributions of our Santa Cruz County community members. As a community member, we ask for your monetary support in creating a safe space for our community members to gather, celebrate, listen, shout, chant, march, learn, exist, break bread, honor, speak, enjoy one another's company.

Our Relationship to the Diversity Center

Our relationship with the Diversity Center is officially called "A Fiscally Sponsored Project". That means that the Diversity Center sponsors our ability to accept tax deductible contributions through their status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The Diversity Center does not provide any funding for Pride from their general funds. Please Donate to Pride!
