Downtown Toledo Pride Celebration 2021

It’s almost Pride weekend in Toledo! There is so much planned between the big event in Promenade and all the fun happening on Adams St, you’ll surely be busy. We’ve put together a schedule of everything going on. Please be advised that Pride is different this year. There will be no parade and the party in Promenade Park is a ticketed event happening in three different sessions. All three sessions are sold out.



Georgjz419 Fun, Food & Spirits

The weekend begins with the Pride Kick-Off Mixer. The mixer is hosted by Equality Toledo, the organization that plans the Pride festivities every year. Stop by between 6-8pm.


The celebration doesn’t end there. Georgjz419 is also hosting the Toledo Pride Variety Show with show times at 10p, 11:30p & 12:30a

Grindhrs Co.

Celebrate Pride Weekend at downtown’s LGBTQ coffee shop. The coffee shop is hosting an Open Runway. This gives viewers and performers more opportunities to catch/participate in a show.

Pride Live at the Park

The programming for Pride is different than in years past. What is normally one big party in Promenade Park at the conclusion of the Pride Parade is going to now be three different time-slotted session blocks. Each session will be an hour and 45 minutes and includes drag shows, live music, drinks, snacks and more.


ASL interpreters will be provided at each show.


All three sessions are sold out.


Toledo After Pride Street Party

Keep the party going with Georgjz hosting their biggest Pride party yet. Because of limited availability at the Toledo Pride event, there will also have entertainment on our outdoor stage from 2-8PM as well as our 4 shows, indoor and out! All proceeds from the outdoor sales benefit the Village on Adams and Toledo Pride.
