Chicago Pride Fest brings the summer fun to Boystown for the nineteenth year on June 22-23. The annual festival, hosted by the Northalsted Business Alliance, celebrates pride, diversity and community in Chicago's famed LGBTQ+ neighborhood. 

The festival, which is the weekend prior to the annual Chicago Pride Parade, brings together tens of thousands of LGBT supporters annually. It runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. down North Halsted Street from Addison to Grace. Organizers suggest a $10 donation upon entering.

This year's festival honors the birth of the pride movement by recognizing the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
