Pride St. Louis returning with McD’s as sponsor


The Pride St Louis Board of Directors has announced the return of St. Louis PrideFest and its theme, “Together Again.”

The board also announced that fast-food chain McDonald’s has agreed to be the presenting sponsor of the Pride St. Louis Grand Pride Parade 2022 on June 26 in downtown St. Louis.

“We are thrilled to welcome McDonald’s as a supporter of PrideFest and we look forward to working with them for many years to come,” said Brandon Reid, president of Pride St. Louis, Inc. “To have McDonald’s, one of the biggest brands in the world, partnering with the LGBTQIA+ community, sends a strong statement about the importance of embracing true diversity. PrideFest is a celebration of togetherness and acceptance and we welcome McDonald’s to our festival experience”

St. Louis PrideFest is a two-day celebration of the LGBTQ community. Previous years have seen attendance at over 300,000 visitors. Due to COVID-19, the event has been on hiatus for two years. PrideFest 2022: Together Again will be held June 25 – 26, 2022 in downtown St. Louis. There are still sponsorship opportunities available for this year. For more information, email [email protected].
