June is almost here, and that means it’s almost Pride Month.  And there are a lot of great events around San Diego, California celebrating Pride Month.  So we found some of the best pride events around San Diego.  We’ll tell you how to get tickets for these events.

1. Pride By The Beach

But you won’t need to purchase a ticket to this first event since it is free.  It is a community event brought to you by the North County LGBTQ Resource Center.

The annual Pride by the Beach Street Festival takes place in Oceanside on June 1st, 2024 this year.  Last year’s festival had over 23,000 attendees, so it’s a big deal.  You can find out more information about Pride By The Beach here.

2. The Official Pride Bar Crawl of San Diego

This is the seventh annual pride bar crawl in San Diego.  It is a great time to dress in the most vibrant outfit you want where you can feel safe during the crawl.  A portion of every ticket sold goes directly to Pride Non-Profit Organizations nationwide; in the past, money has been donated to the Trevor Project; this year, it will be donated to San Diego Pride.  You can purchase a ticket yourself here.

3. Pacific Beach Pride Crawl

Rather bar hop in the Pacific Beach neighborhood?  Then the Pacific Beach Pride Crawl is perfect you!

You’ll be able to take place in a bar crawl that has all the fun of a regular bar crawl (free entry, drink specials, etc.), but the added bonus of an emphasis on inclusivity and acceptance.  Not to mention the rainbow flags and glittering costumes you’ll see at different bars.  You can get a ticket here.
