Silicon Valley Pride 2023

Silicon Valley Pride is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. It started back in 1975 as a gay rights rally and evolved into San Jose Pride Festival in 1976. Next year in 1977, San Jose added its first parade to the celebration. In 2014 San Jose Pride was changed to Silicon Valley Pride, including neighboring cities to encourage unity. It is now the largest Pride celebration of the South Bay and is a family friendly event.
