LA PRIDE is thrilled to announce Latino Carnival, the brand new Saturday and Sunday dance experience powered by Club Papi. Ivy Queen and Maria Jose headline this epic new venue in the totally re-imagined West Hollywood Park. Taking place June 8-10, LA PRIDE is the largest LGBT celebration in Southern California and advance tickets are on sale now.  


In addition to Sunday performances by the red hot Ivy Queen and Maria Jose, the all new Latino Carnival brings top performers to LA PRIDE all weekend long, including Andres Cuervo, Norka, Shyra Sanchez, D'Manti and Banda Cielo Del Sureste. And because there's no party like a Papi party, the sexy Papi dancers, your favorite Papi DJ's and the fabulous Ms. Lola will be at Latino Carnival too. "Club Papi and Granda Entertainment are super excited to be back at LA Pride after a 5 year hiatus," said Jamie Awad of Club Papi. "In the 15 Years we have been producing Latin Stage Dance Area's at different Pride events, the lineup of Ivy Queen and Maria Jose is one of the all time best for us at a Pride event."  


Advance tickets for LA PRIDE are on sale now.


"LA PRIDE remains committed to offering something for everyone in our wonderfully multicultural community and we are very excited to be able to present the all new Latino Carnival," said Rodney Scott, Board President of Christopher Street West, LA PRIDE producers. "And we can't wait to see the iconic Ivy Queen and Maria Jose!"

For 2012, LA PRIDE is better than ever across the 3-day celebration with a fresh mix of performers, DJ's and celebrity hosts, including Karmin, Dev and more. New for 2012 is SummerTramp. Direct from downtown, SummerTramp is the official water park of LA PRIDE. More surprises coming soon.
