House of Pride and Equality (HOPE / ESPERANZA) will host the 3rd annual Santa Maria Pride Celebration and Resource Fair, the largest LGBTQ+ community event in the Santa Maria Valley. All are welcome to enjoy local talent, food vendors and a resource fair. Over 50 local businesses and nonprofit organizations will join efforts to support the LGBTQ+ community right here in Santa Maria! Last year we welcomed over 1,000 pride-goers throughout the day and this year we look forward to welcoming you to Santa Maria Pride 2019!
