Higher Love – Pride Tea Dance

June 27 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Higher Love – Pride Tea Dance has elevated the traditional gay soiree to a whole new level. High-minded Events in partnership with The Paramount Group and Illinois Women in Cannabis are weaving together traditions of the LGBTQ and cannabis communities to properly celebrate a cannabis Pride for the first time since recreational cannabis usage became legal in Illinois in 2020.

In addition to education from cannabis brands, the June 27th event will feature divas and drag queens, DJs spinning disco classics mixed with the hottest new beats, dancing for everyone, and herb at Eden, Fulton Market’s Pride destination.

Higher Love gives you the opportunity to learn the newest trends in cannabis consumption while guests enjoy the energy of Pride, reunite with friends and dance away the afternoon like no one is watching. Guests will enjoy a unique twist to traditional street festival food, while bartenders provide refreshing non-alcoholic beverages throughout the afternoon.

What: Higher Love – Pride Tea Dance
When: Sunday, June 27, 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Where: Eden, 1748 W Lake St, Chicago, IL 60612

Why a tea dance? As an LGBTQ-owned company, High-minded Events wants to continue this long tradition. Tea Dances have a long history within the social scene dating back to the 1800’s. The gay version became especially popular beginning in the 1950’s, primarily underground due to oppression and other legalities. Today, Tea Dances remain a popular Sunday social activity, especially in resort towns, gay destinations, and during holiday weekends.

Tickets are $75 each inclusive of food and non-alcoholic beverages, and ticket packages are available for groups. VIP tickets are available for $125 and include, indoor restrooms, access to the High-minded Bar, air conditioned lounge and deluxe charcuterie board. This is an outdoor event, rain or shine. Must be 21 or older to enter with a government-issued ID for entry. For more information about this Pride event, go to www.highmindedevents.com/events or email [email protected]
