Burien PRIDE starts with Drag Queen Bingo this Friday, May 31, with the main Pride Festival at Town Square Park on Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.!

Back for its third successful year, Burien Pride is a family-friendly weekend that includes a little something for everyone.

A kid-friendly area will include arts, crafts, games, and more.

And for the first time, an extended beer garden layout will give the 21+ crowd a fun time of their own!

And who could forget the street fair that started it all?

Bands on the main stage will feature all LGBTQ+ acts this year, including Xolie Morra & The Strange Kind, Kurt Lindsay, Late September Dogs, The Nasty Habits, and Rachelle DeBelle & The Jamfest Miracles, Whitney Mongé, Jamie Nova SKY, HallowQueen, and the Seattle Premiere Queen Tribute band.

Burien Pride will be hosted by DJ Delirious (Limelight Productions Presents)! A featured performance by the Dames of Drag also returns!

New this year: dunk your heroes in Burien Pride’s Inaugural Dunk Tank located in the center of it all! Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the right to dunk their favorite local celebrities – and more! Want to dunk your boss? Your boyfriend? Girlfriend? Best friend? This is your chance! Special packages are available to dunk the people you want to most! Don’t have a good arm for throwing? Emerald City Softball players will be available at the Dunk Tank to make it even easier for all of you to get the job done!

“We could not be any more excited for our 3rd Annual Burien Pride weekend on May 31 and June 1, 2019,” said Sarah Toce, Discover Burien Executive Assistant and Burien Pride Committee Member. “This is a family-friendly event that has something in it for everyone. Personally, I can’t wait to see some of my friends in the dunk tank this year!”

“We’re really excited about our new layout for 2019, which includes a much larger beer garden area,” said Discover Burien Executive Director and Burien Pride Committee Member Debra George. “We are extremely pleased with the local businesses embracing us and even hosting their own Pride activities throughout the weekend. There’s literally something for everyone in Burien during Burien Pride weekend this year.”

On May 6, 2019, the City of Burien officially proclaimed June as Burien Pride Month. Burien residents gathered to celebrate and honor the LGBTQ+ community in a ceremony held at City Hall.
