2023 SaMo PRIDE Festival
SaMo PRIDE returns in June with activities and experiences that honor the LGBTQ+ community in Santa Monica. The month-long celebration kicks off with the first-ever SaMo PRIDE Festival on Saturday, June 3, turning the entire downtown district, from the Third Street Promenade through Santa Monica Place to the Santa Monica Pier, into a PRIDE zone. “Colors of PRIDE” photo booth installations, designed by LGBTQ+ artists, will be placed throughout the PRIDE Festival with fun, interactive props for capturing memories. Photos from the installations will be assembled to create a photographic mosaic, bringing the three districts together in a rainbow of colors that make up the LGBTQ+ Progress PRIDE flag. Presented in partnership with Cayton’s Children’s Museum, the Santa Monica Place family zone will provide kid-friendly PRIDE activities, transforming Center Plaza into an interactive space for kids to play and learn about inclusivity and acceptance. SaMo PRIDE is a citywide partnership between Santa Monica Place, Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. and Santa Monica Pier, in collaboration with the City of Santa Monica and Santa Monica Travel and Tourism. The SaMo PRIDE celebration continues throughout the month with events that bring together the community. For more information and a full list of events, visit smpride.com.
