Event Description:

Silicon Valley Pride is taking it to Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park in downtown San Jose. Join in the fun and festivities and celebrate our LGBTQ community and the Valley as Silicon Valley Pride celebrates its 43rd anniversary. Our theme this year is Unity. Diversity. Strength.

Silicon Valley Pride Parade and Festival promises to be like none other in all of Northern California because we start off with a Trans and Friends Rally follow by a Night Festival. For the first time, we will start the festival with a Transgender and Non-Binary focused rally. This event has been added to our other Silicon Valley Pride kickoff activities on August 25th, and is free of charge. The rally will be held at the Plaza de Cesar Chavez with doors opening at 4:30pm. Speakers and performers will take the stage at 5pm. While this event is open to everyone, it is uniquely focused on the transgender and gender non-binary members of our community as well as their allies and friends. Please come join us as we celebrate our Transgender and Non-Binary community.

We start up again on Sunday morning August 26th at 10:00 a.m. with our parade along Market Street from Julian Street and ends at the main entrance of the festival. Festival grounds open once again after the parade ends to the excitement of dance performers, talented local artists and the music of live bands. Main Stage and Hey Girl Stage entertainment will be announced in August. Please check our website for our entertainment announcements.

The festival also features: Family Garden (Kids Area with San Jose Public Library Maker Spaceship Bus, Drag Queen Story Time, and Children Discovery Museum activities), Hey Girl Area and Stage (area celebrating our queer women community with beauty stations and other vendors), High-Tech Pavilion (Video Games, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and other High-Tech Products), LeatherLand (presented by Santa Clara County Leather Association), Cocktail Lounge (hard alcohol, wine and craft beer area), and array of vendors including food vendors and many more. We deliver two days of non-stop excitement, entertainment, food and fun. Tickets are available at the door: $5 per day. For more information, please visit
