Featuring new and returning performers, exhibitors, and exciting activities, Pride Festival 2023 is the perfect place to have fun and be your full self with a supportive community of 2SLGBTQIAP+ folks and allies.

Pride 2023 kicks off on the evening of Friday, June 2 with an ages-18-and-up drag show hosted by legendary drag queens Landa Lakes and Miss Shugana. The performance is followed by dancing under the stars until midnight with the popular DJ T Wrecks. Gates open at 6:00 PM.

Saturday, June 3 is a day of all-ages fun starting at 11:00 AM with an open market of 2SLGBTQIAP+ artists and businesses, as well as local food vendors.
