Mission Statement

Capital City Pride-Des Moines, Iowa, is a group of proactive individuals who are striving to recognize the importance of gay culture in the Midwest. The annual Pride celebration, held the second weekend in June every summer, consists of a street party, a parade, and a show with all types of community exhibitors and musical performances! Our mission is to promote acceptance, tolerance, and understanding of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community through education, programming, and visibility.

We accomplish this by promoting a healthy community image and awareness, creating a positive public education and discourse, and developing an effective community collaboration in which our collective resources can be utilized.

The Des Moines metro area is in the midst of an exciting renaissance, and along with that change comes the responsibility of enhancing culture on all different levels. Capital City Pride is proud to be part of that change. Thanks to everyone who helps support Pride weekend and other events throughout the year!

Pride weekend would not be possible if it wern't for the support of the Des Moines metro area community and dedicated volunteers who give their time and energy in making sure that each year's event is something for everyone to enjoy!

We welcome everyone from around the world to participate and enjoy Pride weekend in Iowa's beautiful Capital City ... Des Moines!
