Throughout the month of June, the district and the Skokie Public Library offer a number of Pride events for the Skokie LGBTQ+ community and all Skokie residents and their families. 

More than 1,000 area residents attended the district's initial Skokie Pride event, held on June 9, 2019. In 2021, check out our many mini-events throughout June.
