Carly Rae Jepsen headlining Pride in Concert at the Armory
Twin Cities Pride announced Wednesday that Grammy-nominated pop star Carly Rae Jepsen will be headlining this year’s Pride in Concert on Saturday, June 25th.
New for 2022, Pride in Concert will take place at the Armory. Previously, Pride in Concert took place at Loring Park where Twin Cities Pride is held.
Twin Cities Pride is June 25-26th at Loring Park. The festival is free to attend, and includes vendors, stages with performances, food and a beer garden.
The Twin Cities LGBTQ+ Pride March celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Twin Cities Pride will be on Sunday, June 26th. Previously, this had been called the pride parade. In 2020 a virtual parade was planned and announced but ultimately canceled, not due to the pandemic. No parade was held in 2021.
This will be the first year since 2019 that the event is taking place during the traditional last weekend of June, which commemorates the Stonewall Riots. Twin Cities Pride was canceled for 2020 due to the pandemic and moved to July in 2021.
Tickets for the concert are on sale now. 500 early bird tickets are available for $40, plus fees. Regular-priced tickets are $50-55.
Doors for the 8 p.m. concert open at 6:30.
