Milwaukee Pride has ultimately decided to cancel PrideFest Milwaukee 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

PrideFest was originally scheduled to take place June 4 through June 7, but was postponed in March near the time the state's Safer at Home order took effect. Organizers said they were working with Summerfest to set alternative dates at that time.

Since then, the uncertainty of pandemic has forced Milwaukee Pride to cancel the event altogether. They say they will now look for alternative ways to celebrate PRIDE with community partners and organizations once it becomes safe to do so.
