Sioux Falls Pride
Sioux Falls Pride Month is packed with special events, activities, and performances through June. Rachel Polan, Marketing Director from Sioux Falls Pride, tells us that “We are particularly excited about the Two-Spirit Powwow hosted in partnership with South Dakota Urban Indian Health this year. That will be Thursday, June 16th in the evening.” She says that this year’s Pride is a celebration of the diverse voices in our local LGBTQA+ and Two-Spirit community.”
The main parade and following festival will be held Saturday June 18th. The parade starts at 10AM on 8th and Dakota in bustling Downtown Sioux Falls. The Railroad Center hosts the official festival begins at 11AM and ends at 5PM. You can expect performances from local drag stars, a family friendly atmosphere, and kids corner. For the 21+ crowd, don’t forget to check out the after party and beer garden!
This year’s goal is to create a safe space for LGBTQ residents amidst a recent influx of targeted legislation in South Dakota. The events of Pride Month welcome everyone from the surrounding Sioux Falls community. There are over a dozen events June 11th through 19th. Between Cabaret performances, axe throwing, bingo, drag bunch, and concerts, there is something for everyone.
