About Twin Cities Pride 
Twin Cities Pride is the 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization that produces the annual LGBTQ Pride Festival, March, and other events. In addition, Pride sponsors other LGBTQ nonprofits including but not limited to the MN Deaf Queers, MN POC Pride, and other Prides around the state.
Twin Cities Pride is run primarily with volunteers and a few full-time employees. 
In 2023, the Twin Cities Pride Festival is estimated to brings in roughly 400,000 to 500,000 attendees. We have approximately 450-490 merchandise and information vendors and exhibitors and anticipate 60 food booths (with some vendors have 2 locations). 
If you're part of a company/group/organization that has actively worked against or physically harmed ANY members of the LGBTQ+ community then Pride is not the space for you. 
We seek involvement from vendors who affirm and support our mission and the history of and purpose in holding a pride festival:  
  • Twin Cities Pride seeks to empower every LGBTQ person to live as their true self and to create a future where all LGBTQ people are valued and celebrated for who they are.
  • The Pride celebration commemorates and continues the fight against discrimination and the struggle for equality, for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer persons and their families. 
Having LGBT employees isn't enough to qualify as support for the community. If you are a company/group/organization that has had past Anti-LGBTQ missions/activities in the past 5 years and are working to be more inclusive, please reach out to Andi Otto, Executive Director, before filling out the application so that we can discuss the best steps. He can be reached at  
The application will be submitted no fees and charges for the booth space will be sent via electronic Invoice with a 6.25% payment processing fee applied at the time of approval.

  • Sustainability Practices
  • Other outdoor event experience 
  • Booth size and requirements

If approved as a booth vendor you will be automatically charged the remaining fees associated with the selections you made during the application process along with a 6.25% payment processing fee.   Once approved you will have 2 weeks to provide the COI / proof of Liability Insurance.
