Peoria Proud, and its producing partners, proudly present the 2023 River City Pride Festival. The River City Pride Festival, one of our key programs, is a day-long event of engaging programming and festivities to support awareness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and allied (LGBTQA) community of Peoria, IL, and the greater Central Illinois area. In 2022, our inaugural event at Riverfront Park hosted 30 vendors and sponsors and boasted 5,000 attendees throughout the course of the day. The 2023 event will be expanding its footprint along the riverfront park, and we are excited to have you join us. Peoria Proud encourages and supports diversity and equality throughout the Peoria Metropolitan Area. The coalition seeks to unify the community as a whole, through advocacy, education, and social outreach.
