BLOCK PARTY ’12 is a 21+ party in the streets celebrating Pride – Palm Springs Style. Bring your friends and enjoy the musical headliners and guest DJs entertaining under the stars on Arenas Road. Street performers along with food and beverage stations will also fill the streets. Thousands of dancing party goers and a few dishy drag queens are expected.
This street party is a signature event that brings the Pride celebration to the heart of Downtown … celebrating Pride as well as the symbolic embrace of Arenas Road!
Favorite gay bars and local businesses will be packed to the rafters and spilling out onto the streets for the biggest free LGBT street party in Palm Springs.
Palm Springs Pride is a nonprofit organization and proceeds from the party are earmarked for charitable organizations. The street party does cost a lot to put on with the entertainer fees, fencing, security, tent rentals, toilets, printing, stage, sound, and lighting, nevertheless, the party is free for all who attend. However, we depend on revelers putting a buck or two in the kitty to help cover the cost of the event.
*valid State ID or Passport required to enter the party venue starting at 6:00pm.
