After canceling 2020’s event on account of a pandemic and turning last year’s celebration into a smaller-scale autumnal event called “PridetoberFest,” we’re pleased to report PrideFest will be returning in full force in 2022.

This year’s festival will take place June 2-4 at Henry Maier Festival Park. We already revealed the headliners two weeks ago, and now we know the rest of the lineup. Here’s the impressive list of musicians, DJs, drag performers, authors, experts, and other talents set to take the stage at PrideFest Milwaukee 2022. You can buy single-day tickets and three-day passes HERE.
