The 22nd annual Chicago Pride Fest, June 17 & 18

Brooklyn-based pop singer, Ariana and the Rose, graces the Chicago Pride Fest stage on Sunday, June 18.  

After blossoming on TikTok during quarantine, Ariana and the Rose, aka Ariana DiLorenzo, has ascended from Indie act to mainstream star. 

In the summer of 202, as people started to return to the clubs, Billboard magazine proclaimed:  “Ariana and the Rose is leading the charge back to the dancefloor.”

“I believe art can unify the world,” she said. “I wouldn’t consider myself a consummate optimist, I’m a New Yorker after all, but I do believe in that.”

Ariana and the Rose performs the North Stage (Halsted & Grace) at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 18.

Organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, Chicago Pride Fest runs Saturday, June 17 and Sunday, June 18 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on N. Halsted St. from Addison to Grace in Chicago's Proudest Neighborhood.

The two-day street festival takes place the weekend before the 53rd annual Chicago Pride Parade on June 25.

A $15 suggested donation is recommended. Donations support local nonprofits and fund community projects like the Chicago Pride Crosswalks.
