Sioux Falls Pride is pleased to announce this years sponsors! Through their support we are able to spread the message of hope, pride, love and acceptance to more people. We’re able to host more vendors with local support resources, provide more engaging activities in the kids zone, and increase entertainment options for all attendees.

It is the fourth largest bank in the U.S. by assets and the largest bank by market capitalization. Wells Fargo is the second largest bank in deposits, home mortgage servicing, and debit cards.

Being community-based distinguishes us from every other large bank. By “community-based” we mean we’re not just a bank that happens to be in the community; we’re a community bank. We’re “in and of” every community in which we do business, whether it’s Chapel Hill, N.C.; or Mason City, Iowa; or Roseville, Calif. And we’re in more U.S. communities than any of our competitors.
