2023 Pride Events

We had a fantastic series of Pride events over the summer of 2023 and will be back in 2024 with even more fun! Check back here for more information as the year progresses.

Pride in the Park

Saturday, August 5th, 11 AM to 3 PM, Cedar River Trail Park

Join us for a casual summertime gathering at the lovely Cedar River Trail Park, which is located on the river between Renton Municipal Airport and the Boeing facility. We’ll have a grill going, so bring your own hot dogs, burgers, etc. to grill, or just pack a picnic lunch. Be sure to bring camp chairs and/or a blanket if you have them. We will provide water, sodas, and chips.

This is an all-ages event, and there are spots along the river to dip your toes in the water if it’s hot out. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Renton Pride / Sip ‘n Strut Wine Walk

Renton Pavilion Events Center at the Piazza
Renton’s 2023 Pride will be hosted in partnership with the Renton Municipal Arts Commission and the Renton Downtown Partnership, coinciding with an especially fabulous Sip & Strut Wine Walk that evening in Downtown Renton.

The Sip & Strut Wine Walk is a 21+ event that requires tickets, available here for $35. The wine walk will take participants throughout downtown Renton to participating businesses, where they’ll be able to sample wines from a variety of Washington wineries. The theme this year is Pride, and our booth at the Events Center will have some fun accouterments available for suggested donations.

The Pride event, hosted inside the Renton Pavilion Events Center, will be free, family-friendly, all ages, and will feature local artisans and other LGBTQIA+ focused vendors and organizations, as well as a special presentation by a locally famous and fabulous entertainer. Stay tuned for details!

City of Renton Pride Flag Raising

Monday, June 5th, 6:00 PM, Renton City Hall

On June 5th, 2023 at 6:00 PM members of the LGBTQIA+ Community, City of Renton staff, councilmembers, and Mayor Armondo Pavone will gather in front of City Hill to raise the Pride flag, a tradition that began in 2019. Members of the community are welcome to join the festivities. There will be live music and refreshments provided by Starbucks. Afterwards, a presentation of the Pride proclamation will be made by the Mayor and City Council at 7 PM, in the 7th floor Council Chambers.

Three years ago, the Renton LGBTQIA+ Community gifted a Philly Pride flag to the city which includes a black and brown stripe in addition to the familiar rainbow Pride flag. These colors symbolize Black and Brown People of Color within the LGBTQIA+ community.
