Purple Foundation returns to Dallas Pride Weekend with a lineup that will be sure to spark your soul and set your feet dancing. Pride is a time to come together in solidarity and honor all our unique differences, and we have no doubt you’ll want to celebrate with us—all while benefiting the local Dallas community.
Immediately following the Dallas Pride Parade on Sunday, September 16, 4 pm – 10 pm, is our signature SPECTRUM tea dance, held on the massive patio of Station 4 (S4). DJ Philip Webb (Dallas) returns to kick off the weekend’s closing celebration with his infectious, happy beats. DJ Dan Slater (Australia) will fill the outdoor patio with the rhythms of his upbeat, chunky house sound as he brings the weekend to a soaring conclusion. NOTE: In an effort to avoid the crowd along the parade route, entry to SPECTRUM will be located through the rear doors of S4 off the parking lot. Attendees can dance outside on the patio with the DJs or cool off inside on S4’s dancefloor. S4 is conveniently located in the heart of The Strip and has an expansive multi-level patio which provides ample seating for visiting with friends and plenty of space for dancing as the sun sets on your Purple Does Dallas Pride weekend.
