2022 Pride Festival

Saturday, October 22rd, 2022

Three hands are raised beneath the legend 'Volunteer'


Everyone at Pride Community Center is a volunteer from the board members to the folks who manage our many programs to the folks who answer the phones. The Gainesville Pride Festival is planned, organized, and staffed completely by fabulous volunteers. If you can work a few hours or an entire day, we can use your help. 

You don’t have to be LGBTQ+ to volunteer at the Festival, you just have to be fabulous!

Pride Vendor at the Festival!

The Gainesville Pride Festival is a great opportunity for vendors to support the LGBTQ+ community in North Central Florida. Over 5,000 attendees are expected to visit Bo Diddley Plaza for food, fun, and festivities.  

We invite non-profits, community organizations, local businesses, artists, food and beverage operations, and Food Trucks to apply for one or more spots at this year’s Festival. Space is limited and we expect vendor spots will go fast. Please register early. 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, we are delighted to invite you to celebrate the 21st Annual Spirit of Pride Community Awards Dinner on Sunday, October 16th to kick off Gainesville Pride 2022.  

Award recipients will be honored for their outstanding involvement, support, and contribution to the LGBTQ+ community.
