Salem Capital Pride is proud to present Pride in the Park, our annual Pride celebration for Salem and the Mid-Willamette Valley.

We will be celebrating the LGBTQ+ community through live music and performances from 10 am to 6 pm at the amphitheater; an art show and artist alley; booths with local vendors on the meadow, non-profits, and activities; and food trucks.

Attending Pride

Preparing for the Event

This is an outdoor event so prepare accordingly. The weather forecast is currently 81 and sunny, so bring sunscreen and water to stay hydrated (or visit our wellness booth to get some for free).

Our entertainment is at the old amphitheater with the grass terrace for seating. We suggest bringing a camping chair or blanket to sit on while watching the performances.

Most if not all of our vendors accept electronic payment, but you may still want to bring cash to tip the entertainers or otherwise spending at the event. Salem Capital Pride holds no liability for lost or stolen good or money.

We have hired private security for the event. Even though our event has no history of violence or disruption, we want to be prepared.

An ASL interpreter will be present. Nearly all of the booths will be along concrete paths for wheelchair-accessibility. If you require any type of accommodation please let us know by emailing us at We will do our best to make things as accessible as possible.

We have a number of food vendors and a wine garden, but you are welcome to bring your own food and (non-alcoholic) beverages to have a picnic or enjoy while watching performances.


Limited parking will be available at Riverfront park with an entrance at the intersection of Front and State Street. Additional Park Parking is available to the north with an entrance at the intersection Front and Union St.

Off-site parking is available for free at the Chemeketa Parkade and the Liberty Square Parkade.
