General Information

More grand than any other PRIDE parade ever held in Las Vegas, its SNAPI’s 16th Annual PRIDE Night Parade presented by MGM Resorts International! Join us from 7 to 10pm in downtown Las Vegas for the most glamorous, glittering spectacle ever created by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community of Southern Nevada. This year’s PRIDE Night Parade, led by our Parade Grand Marshal, features Las Vegas’ gay and straight business community, nonprofit organizations, GLBT service agencies, civic groups, and churches as well as SNAPI’s royalty. Don’t forget to come early to grab the best spot and pre-party with PRIDE (at the corner of 4th Street & Bridger Ave.) Then, when the parade ends, make sure to keep the party going at the official after parade party.
