OCEANSIDE — The North County LGBTQ Resource Center’s Pride by the Beach will hold its annual festival from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, at Civic Central Plaza. This is the 15th Pride celebration and will be in-person after a two-year hiatus in downtown Oceanside.

This year’s theme is “Together,” which recognizes the excitement and need for the LGBTQ community to gather in celebration and mutual aid. The festival is the largest free, family-friendly, alcohol and tobacco-free event of its kind in the region. Two stages will feature local speakers, music and entertainment.
