Festivals & Events

Little Rock doesn't have much in the way of gay events save regular drag shows and bingo at the lgbtq+Q bars. But Little Rock's River Market district plays host to the Central Arkansas Pride Fest every October. It features musical acts like in the past Betty Who, who remade the "Queer Eye" theme song, and is always centered around a theme.

Adults will love the alcoholic beverages on offer while taking in a Pride Talk and, meanwhile, their kids can play in the family zone. Food trucks and vendors offer plenty of food and shopping opportunities, too. On the afternoon of the event, a festive and rainbow-colored parade makes its way down President Clinton Avenue. While the festival only lasts one day, there are often events surrounding it (pool parties or gay rendezvous at downtown bars).

Otherwise, there are a couple of other happenings throughout the year that aren't technically gay-leaning, but welcoming nonetheless. They include the Main Street Food Truck Festival in September and Feast in the Field (an al fresco dinner party to benefit Arkansas farmers) in June.
