Pittsburgh Pride 2024 to Celebrate at Allegheny Commons Park West After Access Denied at Point State Park

Pittsburgh Pride will be held May 31 through June 2.

Today, the Pittsburgh Pride Planning Group announced a significant shift in the location of the 2024 Pittsburgh Pride Festival. In response to unforeseen circumstances, the festival will now take place at Allegheny Commons Park West, marking a departure from its previously announced venue at Point State Park.

The decision to relocate follows the unexpected denial of access to Point State Park. Despite this setback, the Pittsburgh Pride Planning Group remains steadfast in its commitment to upholding the values of unity and equality that define the Pride movement.

Dena Stanley, Co-founder of the Pittsburgh Pride Group, expressed both disappointment and determination regarding the venue change. “It is with a heavy heart that we face the denial from Point State Park this year,” Stanley remarked. “However, we are excited to return to Allegheny Commons Park West, a venue that has long embraced our community and provided a vibrant backdrop for our celebrations.”

Despite the change in location, organizers are dedicated to ensuring that the essence of Pittsburgh Pride remains intact. “We are fully committed to preserving the celebratory spirit and inclusive atmosphere that Pittsburgh Pride is known for,” Stanley affirmed. “We invite everyone to join us in commemorating love, diversity, and acceptance at Allegheny Commons Park West.”

Pittsburgh Pride 2024 promises to be a beacon of hope and inclusivity, embodying the resilience and strength of the LGBTQ+ community. Together, let us stand in solidarity and celebrate the richness of our diversity.
