Wynwood Pride is back for its fourth year Friday, June 10, running through Sunday, June 12.

Attendees can purchase tickets for Friday’s and Saturday’s events and enjoy a free neighborhood takeover on Sunday, which will include a wide range of free events and activities all over the neighborhood at some of Wynwood’s more popular venues.  

A spokesperson for Wynwood Pride said “you can expect a glittering marathon of neighborhood-wide drag shows, dance parties, brunches, surprise appearances, art installations and more all weekend. Catch once-in-a-lifetime headliners, jaw-dropping drag, international DJs, art installations, the return of Miss Toto’s Funhouse, a vendor market, non-profit village and more” — all at the RC Cola Plant, a graffiti-filled venue that used to be an abandoned soda factory.  

Special guests scheduled to participate or perform at Wynwood Pride this weekend are rapper Azelia Banks, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alumni Violet Chachki and Gottmik, Welsh pop singer-songwriter Marina, Slayyyter, Cupcakke, Merrie Cherry and DJ Mystic Bill, among many others.  

Local drag talent slated to do splits and death drops on demand includes Miss Toto, Regina Cocoa Lords and the R House Wynwood Drag Brunch crew, including hostess Athena Dion, Morphine Love, Juicy Love, Kat Wilderness and FKA Twink.  

Wynwood Pride’s mission, per the organization’s website, is to “create unifying opportunities that focus on bringing together Miami’s LGBTQ+ community, our allies, and our diverse communities by serving as an international platform to celebrate, promote, and advance LGBTQ+ artists, rights, visibility, advocacy, and education with an emphasis on music, arts, culture, activism, and community.”

The goal is to “establish Wynwood Pride as a sustainable entity and grow the festival over time to better serve the needs of Miami’s LGBTQ+ community and promote Miami’s diversity and richness, locally, nationally and globally by stimulating change and progress in society that will be both intersectional and intergenerational.”  

Wynwood Pride is a 2-to-3-day music festival experience benefiting Equality Florida in the fight against the “Don’t Say Gay” law recently passed by Florida legislators. In accordance with current local guidelines, there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements. 

Event organizers say the “show will take place rain or shine.”  

All ages are welcome, though organizers warn that some content will be PG-13. Hours are 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and 12 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday.
