Central Oregon Pride Festival is the second largest Pride festival in Oregon and encompasses Bend and rural surrounding communities including Redmond, La Pine, Sisters, Prineville, Madras, Warm Springs and more. Sponsored by the Human Dignity Coalition, the event takes place in the heart of busy downtown Bend and welcomes all LGBTQ and allies to celebrate diversity and love. Pride festival attendees can also expect to find workshops, auctions, photo booths, a kids zone, vendors, food vendors, stonewall lounge for beer, wine and cocktails, a marriage equality recognition event, veterans van, a screen printing shop, a good old-fashioned pie eating contest, live music, the Dykes of Bikes motorcycle ride, and more. Whether you’re a member of the LBGTQ community, an ally, or just curious, Central Oregon Pride welcomes you to share the pride we have in ourselves, in our community, and in one another. Human Dignity Coalition has been working in Central Oregon since 1992 to promote equality for the LGBTQ and allied community. We also work across other social justice and environmental causes to build the progressive movement in Central Oregon.
