Tilden Celebrates Pride

Tilden Celebrates Pride

The last weekend of June in San Francisco sees the nation’s largest gathering of the LGBTQ community and its supporters, and here at Tilden Hotel we’re happy to join the celebration!

If you’ll be in town for the San Francisco Pride Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Parade & Celebration this year, we invite you to call Tilden your home base for the proceedings—and to enjoy some relaxation in The Backyard.


San Francisco Pride 2019

More than 100,000 people take part in San Francisco Pride, the 49th running of which goes down on Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th. The City by the Bay, of course, has been a formative national center for the LGBTQ community, and that legacy is part of what makes the local Pride tradition so special (and so grand-scale).

At the heart of the occasion are the inspirational speakers and live performances at the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Rally, which takes place at the Civic Center Plaza on Saturday and Sunday, and of course the great Pride Parade on Sunday, which steps off at 10:30 AM for a Market Street procession between Beale and Eighth streets.

This year’s San Francisco Pride Parade Community Grand Marshals include Mrs. Vera, Vince Crisostomo, Ms. Billie Cooper, Donna Personna, and (as an organization) EPI Equality – Northern California, while the creator of the series Vida, Tanya Saracho, and several of the show’s cast members (Mishel Prada, Ser Anzoategui, Chelsea Rendon, and Carlos Miranda) will be serving as the event’s Celebrity Grand Marshals.

You can take a gander at the complete schedule of events at this year’s Pride Celebration and Parade right here, and orient yourself with the official FAQ here.


Celebrate Pride at Tilden This June

You’ll not only enjoy easy proximity to the San Francisco Pride events downtown with a guest room or suite at Tilden: You’ll also have the option of joining our very own Pride celebrations here at our boutique hotel!

Those include some festive multi-flavored rainbow vodka Jelly shots being served at the bar of our hotel bar & restaurant, The Douglas Room.  Enjoy the summer in The Backyard with firepits, seating and perhaps a Strawberry Frozé – homemade strawberry margarita sorbet topped with sparkling rosé.
