Description

Wilton Manors’ signature event, the Wilton Manors Stonewall Parade & Festival: Greater Ft Lauderdale's Largest LGBT Event, will be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The Marketplace and festival will open at 3:00 pm, with a parade starting at 4:00 pm on Wilton Drive. There will be entertainment on stages throughout the day.

“This is a community-wide event that draws a diverse crowd of approximately 30,000 individuals and families each year,” states Gary Resnick, Mayor of Wilton Manors. “The parade, street vendors, and live performances really offer something for everyone and we are just so thrilled to be hosting this celebration for the 19th consecutive year.”

The festival is held in honor of the Stonewall riots. Tired of harassment from the New York Police Department, the city’s gay community staged a series of violent demonstrations on June 27, 1969. Each year, gay communities across the country hold events to honor the Stonewall riots,which was the beginning of the gay rights movement in the United States.
