Be a part of the movement to increase visibility of the LGBTQIA+ community, celebrate diversity, and unleash fabulous creativity in Northeast Iowa!


With heavy hearts and fantastic hair, the 2020 Decorah Pride Committee announces the cancellation of this year’s Decorah Pride Festival.

Pride 2020, originally scheduled for May 11 was postponed to September 19. However, the continued and rising presence of coronavirus infections in Northeast Iowa made cancellation necessary.

Pulpit Rock Brewing Company in Decorah will still release their annual Pride beer in September. Carry-out cans will be available through the brewery.  Watch social media for Pulpit Rock and Decorah Pride for more details.

Decorah Pride planning for Pride 2021 is already underway. Decorah Pride will host virtual and physically distanced events over the coming year – details will be posted here and on Facebook.

We are an organization that creates spaces and opportunities for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities in Northeast Iowa to connect and collaborate on increasing LGBTQIA+ visibility, celebrating diversity, and unleashing fabulous creativity.
