Pride Events
May 30th - June 2nd


Located less than 3 hours from major metro areas in Colorado (Denver, Grand Junction, Aspen, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, etc.), Salida sits in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Salida has been named as one of the Best Destinations in the West by popular magazines like OutdoorVogue5280, and Sunset.

Salida's small town atmosphere serves as backdrop to the most unique Pride celebration in the region. This weekend is organized by a growing number of community volunteers, allies, and the LGBTQIA+ community. All of our Pride events are designed to foster a strong sense of community while celebrating our individuality.
