Celebrating 15 Years of Inclusivity, Equality and Advocacy, This Year’s Festivities Will Take Place from March 31 - April 16, 2023
MIAMI BEACH - (March 1, 2023) Miami Beach Pride returns for its 15th anniversary with events running from March 31 - April 16, 2023. What originally began as a parade down Ocean Drive has now transformed into programming spanning 17 days that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. The festivities include lavish floats, a queer art showcase designed to support local artists, social justice night as the community faces increasing legislative attacks, celebrity guests of honor, live performances and much more. This year's 2-day festival presented by Celebrity Cruises has grown tremendously and promises to be the biggest and best iteration of Miami Beach Pride to date. With Miami Beach recognized as one of the most welcoming LGBTQ+ communities in the world, this year's theme of ‘Growing Stronger Together’ honors the progress made and the defiance needed for the future.
“With over 16 days of exciting events, there is truly something for everyone and we have maintained our commitment to keep much of our programming free for the community to be as inclusive as possible,” says Bruce Horwich, Chairman of Miami Beach Pride. “Growing from a 15,000-person event in 2009 to now being one of the most celebrated Prides in the country with more than 170,000 attendees from all over the world, our goal is to honor our community all while having the message of unwavering resilience and uniqueness on full display along Miami Beach.”
