Dallas Pride celebrated its 40th year Saturday and Sunday at Fair Park with music, family-friendly fun, and more. Saturday’s Dallas Pride Music Festival featured acts like headliner Allison Ponthier, Black Girl Magic, Averi Burk, Dezi 5, The Roommates, and the cast of the Rose Room. Sunday’s Dallas Price Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade provided plenty of floats, elaborate costumes, bands, and more along the mile-long route.

But that’s not the end of North Texas’s pride celebrations. We’ve compiled a full list of events throughout the month here. And check out this gallery of photos from the weekend, courtesy of Bret Redman.
