Key West Pride Week 2022 | Key West Events

June 1-5, 2022

Key West Pride 2022 brings downtown Key West to life for five days in June. In just one week, you will experience fun talent shows, pool parties, plays, a street fair, and a big parade. During this great event, the Key West community comes together to celebrate Pride. Across the entire island, you can feel the collective energy.

 

Show your Pride in Key West

The Key West Pride Parade is amazing. Witnessing a section of the “Sea to Sea” rainbow flag, a 1.25-mile rainbow flag that is believed to be the longest rainbow flag in the world, is a special feeling that you’ll remember forever. This flag is a symbol not only of LGBT pride but also of the mantra of One Human Family and the acceptance, openness, and pride of Key West. Being on Key West during Pride week allows you to a special community of open-minded people.
