SMTX Pride

San Marcos Plaza Park

All Day, FREE
SMTX PRIDE kicks off with a parade from Dunbar Park to Plaza Park, where the celebration continues with live music, food ventures, drag show and more! Pride is a great way to unite in a positive stance against violence and discrimination towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and ally people. The goal of SMTX Pride is to bring awareness of unity and equality while building a community of support.
