INTRODUCING 30 DAYS OF PRIDE
The Board of Directors has decided to move the 3-day Pride Fest Weekend Celebration to a “30 Days of Pride” celebration. We are taking 30+ events that we pack in over the course of a 3 day weekend with 30k+ people in the East Village and instead, we are spreading them out over 30 days in June across the entire city.
This will be a month full of in person events with social distancing and mask mandates mixed with some virtual production that will be livestreamed via Facebook and Youtube. The majority of the “30 Days of Pride” schedule, as the Pride Guide, will be released in the coming months as we work to secure locations and dates for all the respective events. People can expect to see almost all of our major Pride Fest Weekend events like Silent Disco, Fun Run, Pet Parade, Community Yoga, & the Pride Parade, plus some new ones in this new month long format.
Our hope is that we won’t need to have social distancing and mask mandate guidelines by June BUT given the current environment, Capital City Pride will adapt and make changes to protocols while remaining consistent with recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state public health officials. We understand the need for everyone to feel connected to our events, community and celebration so offering a diverse portfolio of events and programming in different mediums will be key to our success in 2021.
