Star City Pride Festival 2021

Together WE Rise!

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth. 

– Baha’U’Llah

Nowhere is this spirit and enthusiasm more apparent than during SCP's  two day festival featuring world-class entertainers, DJs, family friendly activities, and FINALLY a PARADE! Star City Pride brings together members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, their friends, allies, and supporters in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBTQ community. Pride unites, educates, and engages people to support and empower the LGBTQ+ community and our allies.

Join us this year for our big return Friday June 18 and Saturday June 19th at our new festival location, Matt Lot 8 in the Haymarket. We are so excited to offer both in-person and virtual options to participate in this year's festivities including the parade.

Star City Pride, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is an all-volunteer organization that produces the annual two-day Star City Pride festival, parade, Stellars, Play It With Pride Volleyball Tournament, and other fundraisers throughout the year. The Second largest Pride festival in Nebraska, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a focus on inclusion, and work to educate the wider community that diversity builds a stronger and healthier society. Taking pride in what we have achieved since 2008, we strive to teach the future generations that the battle for acceptance continues. It is our mission to envision, plan and execute a roster of events and activities that are as diverse as the community itself, including activations centering on entertainment, events, arts, culture and civic and social engagement.
