Stonewall Street Festival 2010 - Fort Lauderdale and Wilton
Manors Gay Pride
Celebrating Stonewall Street Festival and Parade in Wilton Manors
As Fort Lauderdale has developed over the past 15 years into one of the world's
premier gay resort destinations, so to has its annual Stonewall Street Festival and
Parade grown and grown. It should be noted that Fort Lauderdale celebrates its main
Gay Pride South Florida Festival, aka Pridefest, earlier in the year (it took place over the
weekend of March 13 and 14 in 2010), and this is also a terrific event, drawing crowds
from all over South Florida. The Stonewall Street Festival celebration occurs in
mid-June (June 20, 2010 - note that this is a date change, from Saturday to Sunday, for
this year) in the gay-popular community of Wilton Manors (which adjoins Fort
Lauderdale), to honor what many consider to be one of the foremost events in the
history of lesbian and gay rights, the Stonewall Riots, which commenced early in the
morning on June 28, 1969. It was begun in 2000 and has blossomed into a first-rate,
festive celebration in recent years.

Many major cities around the world now host their Gay Pride Celebrations around this
time, among them Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, New York City, San Francisco,
Santa Fe, Seattle, and Toronto.

Fort Lauderdale's Stonewall Street Festival takes place in one of the metro area's most
GLBT-visible areas, the Wilton Manors community, and consists of festival and parade,
both on Sunday, June 20. The festival, which starts at noon, consists of a street fair with
some 150 vendors and GLBT organizations, and the parade starts at 11 am and runs
northeast along Wilton Drive from N.E. 20th St.
