Where do i tell my rideshare to drop me off? 

Join us at Tower Grove Park, 4527 Northeast Dr., St. Louis, MO 63110. Your car service will be able to drop you at the Western entrance to the festival, near the Humbold Circle Stage. This is the best place to be picked back up when you've had all the fun possible for the day.

will there be drag? 

The question is, would it be a Pride festival without it? We think not! See Jane Sinclair and friends on the Sons of Rest (Purple) Stage at 3p on Saturday, then the Roxy Valentine's Showcase at the same time, same place on Sunday. Also on Sunday, check out the Ball in the Park presented by Maven Lee, at Cypress Circle -- look for the Skate Culture Roller Rink and you'll be at the Ball! 

IS tower grove pride pet friendly? 

YES! We love your (well-behaved) fur babies, and we've designated a special area at Cypress Circle where it's a little less hectic and where you can meet other dog parents. Look for the Skate Culture Roller Rink and you'll be at Cypress Circle. **Please clean up after your pups, there won't be poo bags on site, but plenty of trash bins for disposal.**

CAN I BRING A COOLER?

YES! Picnic in any of the grassy fields inside the festival area. NOTE: No glass is allowed. 

ARE THERE OPPORTUNITIES TO VOLUNTEER? 

YES! We need helping hands to fuel this people-powered pride festival. So sign up here and pitch in as much or as little time as you can.  **The closer to the event, the less likely we'll be able to respond to inquiries.**
