The fourth annual Southern Utah Pride Week culminated in a festival full of music, dancing, food and celebration as large crowds of revelers gathered at Town Center Park on Main Street from 3-9 p.m. Saturday.

Concession stands and food vendors sold refreshments, and organizations across the state set up booths to provide information to guests during the event.

Town Center Park is a historical landmark, which St. George Mayor Jon Pike said was the perfect place to host the festival.

“(Town Center Park) has always been a gathering place, and I think it’s appropriate to have this type of gathering here today,” he said.

Southern Utah Pride Week launched in 2016 when a small group got together to plan the event which quickly attracted over 200 attendees, and has gained traction ever since.

More information about Southern Utah Pride Week is available on the Pride of Southern Utah website.
