The world’s largest National Coming Out Day festival

13th and Locust ( Main Stage )  Philadelphia, PA 19107  (215) 875-9288

Did you know the largest National Coming Out Day event takes place right here in Philadelphia? That’s right! Taking over the Gayborhood neighborhood of Philadelphia in Midtown Village, Outfest celebrates Philadelphia’s LGBT history and LGBT community.

The block party — spanning a dozen full blocks — consists of vendors, community group tables, drag shows, games, bar crawls, music and shopping.

A main stage hosts live entertainment of all sorts all day long, bringing entertainment that in the past has spanned from high-heel races to belly dance shows to award ceremonies.

(1)  Philly Pride is unveiling a food court in the intersection of 12th and Spruce Streets.  There will be plenty of food vendors and a place to sit and eat.

(2)  “Great Wall of Love for the LGBTQ Home for Hope” Dunk Tank on Quince Street at Locust.  Come support the great endeavor of the LGBTQ Home for Hope.

Throughout the festival grounds, a number of outdoor bars and dance parties continue the spirit of the event all throughout the Gayborhood.
