One of summer’s most anticipated events in South Florida, Stonewall Street Festival and Parade, is coming up.
Stonewall will be bigger than ever since the festival will stretch from 5 Points to NE 20th Street on Wilton Drive with multiple stages filled with entertainment; exhibits from sponsors, merchants, and area non-profits; demonstrations; games; street performers; and an exciting assortment of gourmet food trucks, and beverage stations.
This year, the parade will take place at dusk instead of early morning, which should be great for those who are worried about the early morning heat. It will include celebrities, floats, costumes, equality couples (long-term same sex couples), groups and travel to NE 20th Street where the culmination of the day’s events will be a Pride Dance.
The hosts this year will provide constant entertainment and include Doria Biddle, producer and co-host, who has written for MTV, the animated series Rugrats and Recess, and has offered her slyly funny commentary on various talking-head programs. She has also served as an editor at Teen Magazine, where she learned all about boys and makeup; Frank DeCaro, is a writer /performer and host of The Frank DeCaro Show every weekday on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. He is best known for his six-and-a-half-year stint as the flamboyant film critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and his pioneering gay memoir “A Boy Named Phyllis;” and Comic Keith Price, the first out African-American personality on satellite radio. As co-host and associate producer of the internationally popular Morning Jolt w/ Larry Flick, on SIRIUS XM Satellite’s OUT Q station, Keith shares his viewpoints and brand of humor on current events with the world, while also interviewing some of the most iconic and news making figures of pop culture and entertainment.
Scheduled to appear is popular Miami/Fort Lauderdale DJ/Producer Maximus 3000 who says “it’s a bit self indulgent but i’ve made it my mission to attend and participate in as many Pride festivals as I can and show my support for my community who is still struggling with equality every day. I believe I should share my talent and gift and use my voice to spread the word until we are all equal.”
No stranger to performing to mega crowds and festivals, Maximus 3000 has to power to move mountains with his diverse and unique high energy sets. Already having performed at several high profile festivals and mega pride events such as: Official DJ to The First Annual “Miami Beach Gay Pride” 2009 ( Miami Beach estimated 20k attendees) sharing the stage with mega performers such as La India, Patti Labelle and Ceevox and 2011 JUST this past April sharing the stage with International Salsa/Merengue sensation Elvis Crespo and more (to an estimated 40k attendees and broadcast worldwide to 50k more viewers), “Pridefest Fort Lauderdale” 2010 (Fort Lauderdale 15k Estimated attendees) “Tropical Heat” (Key west 2k attendees), Art Explosion 2009 Festival “Miami and Fort Lauderdale Dance Party” (Fort Lauderdale 2k attendees), “2009 Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival Official Fort Lauderdale Dance Party” (Fort Lauderdale 1.5k attendees), as well as his weekly residency Living Room Nightclub Fort Lauderdale “Liquid Fridays” which has become a groundbreaking and trendsetting weekly gathering, where an average of 2500 – 3000 partygoers revel in the uplifting and vivacious beats provided by Maximus 3000, since 2008.
There will be several activities going on at the Stonewall Street Festival.

Many people say that the best part of a street festival is the food, and Stonewall plans to follow that theory. They will show the culinary excellence of Greater Fort Lauderdale, with a chef exhibition, gourmet food trucks, and festival food. In addition to each bar mixing and serving their own creations at their establishments, The Drive will house various bar stations with donated liquor/beer/water/juice. Each of these stations will be “manned” by staff from a local bar, and a décor competition will ensue with the winning establishment being “crowned” the 2011 Stonewall Street Festival Décor Queen for Best Bar Station.
