100% Local Talent
During the pandemic, our local LGBTQIA+ artists struggled to stay afloat. So PrideFest decided to prioritize these artists when booking for 2021. Additionally, we’ve elevated some of our favorite artists to co-festival directors, create a more distributed and diverse group deciding on talent and speakers for the event. You’ll see some of your favorite local acts, from DJ Riz, Adra Boo, and the BeautyBoiz to Anita Spritzer, DJ Dana Dub, and a Latinx showcase. The groups behind the Dyke March and Pride ASIA will also be producing shows for PrideFest this year, and there’ll be a Trans Power Hour featuring local trans and non-binary artists and speakers. You can find the full schedule at www.pridefest.org
Keeping the Community Safe
Please bring your masks and proof of vaccination! We are keeping close track of the Delta variant in our community and may end up having a fully masked event. We will also be requiring proof of vaccination to get into our beer gardens. There are five blocks of Broadway for everyone to spread out and enjoy this cherished community festival while keeping each other safe.
Help our Small Businesses Recover
PrideFest hosts non-profits, arts and crafts vendors, as well as bringing in thousands of attendees to Broadway to enjoy the retail stores, restaurants, bars, and more. A big weekend of business for all of these small businesses will be a big boost to their recovery.
