Pride Party on the Roof

UPDATE! The Austin Pride Parade has been rescheduled to September 30. Due to a scheduling conflict at the Jones Center on Congress Avenue, our event, Pride Party on the Roof (originally postponed due to severe weather), has been canceled. We look forward to working with our partners The Q Austin, The Kind Clinic, Mouthfeel, Equality Texas, Out Youth, TGQ Social, Equality Vodka, Hubert's, and NadaMoo Ice Cream on future programming! Click here for more information about the Austin Pride Parade.

Free and open to all ages

Drop in before, during, or after the parade any time from 8-11P! Rooftop capacity is limited to 300 guests at one time.

Join us for a celebration of Pride and Austin’s LGBTQIA communities, presented by The Contemporary Austin, The Q Austin, Kind Clinic, and Mouthfeel!

All are invited to stop by our Congress Avenue museum during the Austin Pride Parade for creative art making, music from local queer DJ Mouthfeel, complimentary snacks and signature drinks, and lots of glitter, in partnership with Equality Texas, Out Youth, TGQ Social, and Equality Vodka.

This is a FREE, all-ages event that celebrates diversity, individuality, and self-expression in a safe and affirming space. Dance on the rooftop alongside gay artist Jim Hodges’s spectacular installation With Liberty and Justice for All (A Work in Progress)! Indoor art galleries will be closed for installation during this event.

  • ENJOY – Music and open bar courtesy of Equality Vodka get the roof raging while you enjoy the best view in the city to watch the parade.
  • IMMERSE – Get sweaty and dance on the rooftop with a few surprise performances!
