Lancaster Pride is a celebration of the progress that the local LGBTQ+ community has made toward achieving visibility, acceptance and equality within Lancaster County As an organization, Lancaster Pride is committed to producing a vibrant festival that honors these achievements. We want to educate, collaborate, and build partnerships with our allies, associations, and other organizations that directly support the LGBTQ+ population.
Lancaster Pride was founded in 2007 with the concept of creating a welcoming event to celebrate the lives of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. One year later in 2008, Lancaster’s first Pride festival was held at Buchanan Park. Lancaster Pride has since planned and held yearly festivals as well as other affirming events to celebrate the community. As support and visibility have grown, every year Lancaster Pride Festival welcomes more visitors, volunteers, vendors and performers.
As an organization, Lancaster Pride strives to create a diverse board of volunteers to ensure that everyone in the community is heard and included. From humble beginnings to large festivals with thousands of visitors, we have watched the transformation of Lancaster in both human rights and the celebration of diversity.
