ADMISSION & COST
Loudoun Pride tickets can be purchased here. With each ticket, you have free reign to enjoy all the musical performances, participate in a bunch of free activities, and explore the festival grounds at no cost. You will receive a wristband upon checking in to allow for re-entry. Food, drink, private vendor activities, and merchandise may be available at additional cost. Tickets may not be available at the door as ticket sales are limited to comply with our venue's requirements. Tickets will only be available electronically.  While we understand many Pride events may be free, we are offering an event that is part music festival, part-vendor fair, and part-foodie paradise with tons of free activities and so much more for the first time in Loudoun County and on the largest scale ever done in Northern Virginia. We hope you'll join us!

ANIMALS
Pets and other animals are not allowed at Claude Moore Park unless they are identifiable service animals, on leash, with proper registration.
