2022 FESTIVAL GUIDE and DIGITAL PROGRAM

Updated: Sep 24

We're back for two-whole-days of DEAD ASS fun! But there's a lot to miss if you don't make a little plan. FOMO

is a real thing! So here's a digital program to highlight the food, the fun, the entertainment -- everything we've got packed into Tower Grove Pride 2022!


The fun starts at 11am each day, ending at 6pm.


GETTING HERE

Plug in "Cypress North Pavilion - Tower Grove Park" into your rideshare app. That will get you dropped right at the western entrance to the festival. IF YOU PLAN TO DRIVE, please park along the perimeter of the park and not inside the park. Use the map below for information on handicapped parking.


JUST FOR FUN

If you're smart, you'll plot your fun in advance so you are guaranteed not to miss a beat! Again this year we'll have the Practicing Kindness Picnic at the foot of Sons of Rest Pavilion hosted by

Date Ideas and Things to Do STL. So bring a blanket and relax! Meet local Instagram sensations Hailee and Kendra near the Chinese Pavilion. Craft your heart out with Craft Alliance at the Playground Pavilion. Make your next job at the Employment Connections Career Fair. Roll' with the homies at the pop-up roller rink presented by Skate Culture -- skate rental on site! Don't leave your pups all alone at home, they'll love the Pet Zone at Cypress Circle where they can meet other well-behaved fur-children and maybe get a free treat from a local vendor. Got someone else's kids this weekend, or your own? Good news is we'll have children's activities in abundance at this family-friendly fest. Thanks to City Museum, Craft Alliance, St. Louis Zoo, Complete Harmony Yoga for Youth and more for making this year welcoming to guests of all ages.


PEOPLE'S JOY

We've teamed up with some of our most colorful friends, the organizers of the People's Joy Parade (of Cherokee Street), for an "all-join-in" second-line down Main Drive. Line up starts at 11am on Sunday and the procession begins at noon!


ACCESSIBILITY

We aspire to be the most accessible event anywhere. If you are mobility challenged, look for the Golf Cart Taxis provided by our amazing volunteers and in collaboration with Soulard Pride. Reserved parking can be found on the map below. Waive down a cab and make your way throughout the festival grounds.
