LGBTQ Celebrations

Gay Polo, PrideFest, and more events throughout the year to celebrate Pride

There’s always a party going in The Palm Beaches, and our local LGBTQ community loves putting on events to celebrate living in an open, friendly destination. Visitors are more than welcomed to take part in the revelries.
 
International Gay Polo Tournament
If there’s a showstopper when it comes to unique events, this is it. Don’t get us wrong, the polo play is tremendous, but there’s all so much more. During spring time, LGBTQ polo athletes from around the globe make their way to The Palm Beaches to play in this tournament. But it’s the tailgates, or rather the over-the-top, crazy tailgates that star. Each tailgate has its own theme, which is how things get so wildly animated. You could be in nightclub-like atmosphere with music and Champagne, a pop-up salon with workers in drag, or as they had one year, an exceptional romantic wedding chapel where an actual ceremony took place. The International Polo Club in Wellington plays host to this annual tourney. The event is a whole weekend affair, including the vibrant Polotini Party and tasty Sunday Brunch.

Palm Beach Pride
Be out and be proud. Downtown Lake Worth is one of the most well-known LGBTQ enclaves in The Palm Beaches. So naturally, waterside Bryant Park in this downtown would be the place for showing off your pride. It’s an exciting scene to see the giant rainbow flag being proudly marched along the streets during the parade, listening to diverse set musical genres, and take in the easy-going atmosphere of Lake Worth.

Fairs, Festivals, and Flavors
The Palm Beaches have no shortage of special events. If it’s art you love, we have ArtPalmBeach, the Lake Worth Street Paining Festival, or ArtiGras for you. SunFest means refreshing waterfront breezes, national headliners, and 50 bands on 3 stages for 5 days. Samba your way through downtown Boca Raton during Brazilian Beat or catch a new movie screening at the Palm Beach International Film Festival. The local craft beers are up for tasting with Brew at the Zoo and the finest restaurants serve specialty-priced prix fixe menus for Flavor Palm Beach. The events are many, so get your calendar ready, and we’ll see you here.
