This year’s Pride Month celebration in San Antonio will offer something it never has before, a parade and festival on the famous San Antonio River Walk on June 18!

The inaugural Bud Light Pride River Parade was created by Visit San Antonio to promote the city’s inclusion, encouragement and support of the LGBTQ+ community to live openly with equal rights.

The fun starts on land with the Celebration at La Villita from noon to 5 p.m.

.At La Villita’s Arneson River Theatre, visitors will enjoy an afternoon of family-friendly, live on-stage entertainment from DJs, bands, impersonators, dancers and more.

The Bud Light Pride River Parade will have two showings, each with more than 17 colorful river barges. The first on the Downtown Reach of the San Antonio River Walk will serve as the closing event for the Celebration festival at La Villita. The encore presentation, on the River Walk Museum Reach, provides an additional opportunity to be part of the community.
