We would like to welcome you to TAMPA PRIDE, Inc., a Florida Non Profit Corporation (“TAMPA PRIDE”). The return of this organization and event was was driven by a grassroots group of GLBTA Tampa Bay business owners, community leaders, and individuals. We are igniting the passion and bringing back this event to display the diversity that Tampa, Florida has in its heart. TAMPA PRIDE has a mission statement and commitment to demonstrate diversity as a community as displayed through a festival with vendors from organizations of national to local levels and a PRIDE parade. This event will also create a positive economic impact to the Tampa Bay area through local and national tourism from a long weekend of scheduled events. We are holding the 2nd Annual TAMPA PRIDE Festival and Parade on March 26, 2015 in Historic YBOR City, also known as The GaYBOR District. This will become an historical and annual spring event when Florida weather is most envied!
