A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT

Taos Pride is three days of gathering, sharing, and being visible in our community. We want to invite you to share in the events and become a part of our quirky and open family. We do things a little differently in Taos. Be ready for an experience that may take you to new places.

Thursday and Friday start things off with social gatherings and parties. Saturday morning we get everyone together for a parade through town. The main event happens Saturday with Pride in the Park. It is an afternoon of music, dance, performance and relaxing in the park with friends. Saturday night culminates in a blow-out drag performance near the plaza.

The goal of Taos Pride is to create a place for people to be themselves. We welcome people and organizations from any community that share these sorts of values. If you want to participate, organize or present at our events, please contact us with the form at the bottom of the page.

Pride in the Park

Pride Parade

On Saturday, August 20th the lineup of floats starts at 9:45 at the County Court parking lot on Albright.

The parade begins at 10:45 and will arrive at Kit Carson Park at 11:45. Pride in the Park begins at Noon.

This will be the third year we parade through town. It is a small town affair. Look for a stream of old trucks, hot cars and a ton of colorful people walking the parade route from the County Courthouse to Kit Carson Park. If you want to participate, show up in the courthouse parking lot on Saturday and pitch in with the decoration. If you would rather watch, line the side of the street and cheer just before noon.
