This is only their fourth year and already there were over 12,000 participants. Read more below.
Here's their story:
"As a project of PFLAG, Pride St. Charles hosted the first ever pride event in St. Charles County at St. Charles Community College on May 30, 2015. Amid the pouring rain we had 3,500 attendees and a beautiful double rainbow that appeared at the end of the day that signaled a new beginning for progress and better visibility for those in the LGBTQIA+ community in St. Charles County and surrounding areas.
"Our second year, we moved our annual festival to the beautiful 370 Lakeside Park in St. Peters, MO. We welcomed 7,000 attendees to our 2016 festival in the beautiful setting. In August, 2016, Pride St. Charles became it's own 501(c)(3)! Many thanks to St. Charles PFLAG for supporting us our first two years, we are forever grateful!
"Our third annual St. Charles Pride Festival was a huge success welcoming over 12,000 attendees to the LGBTQIA+ event in its new scenic location of Frontier Park in Historic Downtown St. Charles! The support of the community, businesses, and organizations has been incredible and an integral part in the growth and success of Pride St. Charles through the years." -- From About Pride St. Charles
