Attending Pride

Preparing for the Event

It is too early to tell the weather, but we recommend people bring sunscreen and water to protect themselves from the sun. This is an outdoor event so prepare accordingly.

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.

If you require any type of accommodation please let us know by emailing us at We will do our best to as accessible as possible.


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.
