Pride St. Charles is deeply honored to be able to provide safe and inclusive events for the LGBTQIA+ community, where everyone can feel accepted and celebrated. We know how important these events are to our community and we do not take this responsibility lightly. The Board of Directors has been monitoring the current COVID-19 Pandemic very closely. After much consideration, the 2020 Pride St. Charles festival has been cancelled.


"We have relied heavily on the information provided by state and national resources, and due to the current information available, we sadly feel that the safest and most responsible course of action for all is to cancel the 2020 Pride Festival scheduled to be held at the Family Arena on 10/3/2020. We must prioritize the health and safety of all involved of the curating and participation of our events," said Beth Finder, President.



In lieu of the Pride St. Charles 2020 Festival, we will be hosting a series of YouTube videos and Facebook Live events in order to maintain community interaction and connection.During these live events there will be ample opportunity for stakeholders to convey the same support that occurs during the Pride St. Charles Festival every year. We will also be making plans for the 2021 festival.



Several sponsors and vendors have decided to maintain their investment in Pride St. Charles by reserving their space for the 2021 festival.

"We have so much gratitude for our community's, vendor's, sponsor's, and partner's continued support during this unprecedented time. We are deeply saddened that we will not have an in-person St. Charles Pride festival in 2020 but assure you that our 2021 festival will be one for the record books.” President Finder stated.
