Pride Week is more than just a parade and festival, it’s about our entire Buffalo community coming together to celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and identity. We all celebrate Pride in different ways, which is why you’ll find a wide range of events to support during Buffalo Pride Week. Take a look at the calendar below for information on each unique event.

We are promoting non-crowd-based programming that encourages and uplifts LGBTQ+ people in Western New York while keeping everyone safe. All affirming organizations, businesses and individuals can join us in celebrating 2021 Buffalo Pride Week by sharing their safe and lawful Pride activities. Any in-person events and activities shared on our event page or calendar must comply with current federal, state and local COVID-19 laws, regulations, and safety guidelines.
