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

Drag superstar Eureka O’Hara graces the Chicago Pride Fest stage on Saturday, June 17.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race alumna has appeared on Netflix’s AJ and the Queen, Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story, and the Emmy-nominated HBO docuseries We’re Here.  

Growing up a poor country child in East Tennessee raised by a single mother, Eureka is living their dream out loud as the six-foot-four (without heels) plus-size drag superstar of the world.

Eureka O’Hara performs the North Stage (Halsted & Grace) at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 17.

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.
