The City of San Antonio’s Center City Development Office is sponsoring the second annual SA Family Pride Fair on Saturday, June 4 at Historic Market Square.

The event, which drew hundreds from the LGBT community last year, is a kick-off to Pride Month which is observed worldwide during the month of June. The fair will include food booths, musical performances, give-aways and other family-friendly events.


The Center City Development Office produces countless festivals and fairs throughout the year, attracting crowds to Market Square with the lure of food, music and a colorful location.

The Family Pride Fair fits Center City’s template and is designed to bring people to the West end of downtown and to the businesses which make Market Square their home.


Last year, Sebastian Guajardo, a special projects manager for the Department of Culture and Creative Development and one of the organizers of the 2015 fair, said in a statement, “The goals of the event are to celebrate with PRIDE San Antonio’s diversity, provide opportunities for families to learn about Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender programs and services, and to support the health and well-being of San Antonio’s community including youth and empowering them in building a future where all people are accepted.”


The SA Family Pride Fair is different from the Pride San Antonio Festival & Parade, which is slated for July 2, in that it is not a fundraiser.

The Center City Development Office presents the Second Annual SA Family Pride Fair, June 4, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Historic Market Square, 514 W. Commerce. This event is free and open to the public. For more information use this link or call 210-207-8600.
