2021 was a year of adjustments and successes! We are thrilled to announce that this year’s two-day Star City Pride Festival was the biggest in our history! Not only did we have more vendors and attendees than ever before; we delivered Star City Pride 2021 content to our audience both in-person and streaming LIVE online! Also, with the hard work and determination of our Parade Planning Committee, SCP was finally able to host Lincoln’s first ever Star City Pride Parade! Thousands lined the streets, cheering on the Parade participants, and celebrating Pride by surrounding the Nebraska Capitol Building with light and love! The 2021 Pride Parade was historic for many reasons, so we can’t wait to see how it grows in 2022!
While we are still celebrating our many successes, we are also hard at work on planning next year’s Parade and Festival. Save the Date now!

Star City Pride is an all-volunteer organization, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and we rely heavily on the generous support of our Sponsors and Donors, on this page, you will find information on Star City Pride’s advertising rates, Festival vendor booth rates, and sponsorship opportunities. In addition to the thousands of folks you will reach as an SCP Sponsor, you can find more ways to engage. Star City Pride will be producing several fun and family-friendly events leading up to Pride 2022. You can expect some returning favorites, like our annual Play It with Pride sand volleyball tournament, and The Art of Pride – Art Auction. We will be adding new ways to participate in the coming months, including a New Year’s Gala and a Softball Tourney! Looking for other ways to stay engaged and give back to the community? Great!

TOGETHER WE RISE: We believe that that Star City Pride has a responsibility to be of service to Lincoln’s LGBTQIA+ community, and to be advocates for justice and equal rights for all, especially for our Trans and Queer-BIPOC communities. We believe that we accomplish this, in part, by creating a space for education and advocacy each year at the Pride Festival; by bringing together other organizations who serve these goals; and by celebrating the beauty in our diversity. We believe that we are successful when we work TOGETHER to meet these goals.
We need your help to continue this important work. Please contribute today and together we will celebrate with PRIDE!
