The Annual Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival and Parade, Sky Hi Since 2012

Sky Hi Productions has been assisting the production of major community based events related to Miami Beach Gay Pride since 2012.  We have coordinatied with various teams to execute the envisioned yearly concept of the festival and the parade and serving as the conduit between essential bars, bartenders, business, charities, foundations and revelers both local and tourist.

Miami Beach Gay Pride is an extraordinary three-day event that features a Beach Party and a Festival & Parade with more than 125 LGBT-friendly vendors and businesses, exciting celebrities, musical performances, refreshments, food and a family-friendly play area.

Since its inception in 2009, Miami Beach Gay Pride has grown from a neighborhood event to an event on the global stage with A-list celebrities such as Mario Lopez, Elvis Duran, Iggy Azalea, Jordin Sparks, Gloria Estefan and Adam Lambert. Attendance has grown as well. An estimated 15,000 spectators turned out for the first Pride parade in 2009; an estimated 130,000 attended the event in 2016. In addition to Parade spectators, last April’s event included more than 70 parade contingencies, 35 floats and 3,000 participants.
