2021 Pride Events In The North Loop

While the official Twin Cities Pride Festival is a few weeks off (July 17-18), a number of North Loop businesses are offering Pride events and specials between now and then.

For the weekend of June 25-27, Parlour is selling specialty cocktails with names like Stonewall Was A Riot and Rhubarbra Streisand, with $1 from each drink going to support OutfrontMN.

On Sunday, June 27th, Graze will host a Pride Party from noon-10pm, kicking off with a drag brunch on the upstairs patio at noon, then DJs outside from 1:30-10. They will have $8 specialty cocktails with Absolut and Altos, with $1 from every drink purchased going to OutFront MN.

From now through the end of June, Red Cow is selling Tickled Pink Pride Cocktails (Pisco, Aperol, lemon, strawberry and prosecco), with $1 from each sale donated to Queerspace Collective.

Fulton Beer is selling Pride-themed caps and t-shirts in their North Loop taproom, with a portion of the proceeds going to OutFront MN.

Inbound BrewCo is selling rainbow stickers with the Inbound logo for $2, donating $1 from every sticker sold to OutFront MN.


On Friday, July 16th, the Hewing Hotel is hosting a “Sun’s Out Buns Out Rooftop Pride Party” from 11am-3pm. It will feature food, tropical cocktails and a DJ.

Also on July 16th, North Loop Galley will have a 2021 Pride Kickoff Party from 6-10pm. Their Instagram page urges friends to “come out and support our talented Twin Cities Queens, Kings and performers and drink for a good cause.”

These are the events/specials we’ve noticed around the neighborhood and on social media. As we learn of more, we’ll update this post.
