Capital City Pride was established in 1978 when a group of courageous people marched from the Iowa State Capital to the Blazing Saddle in the East Village.It is with their spirit that we have continued for more than 40 years, effecting positive change, diversity, and celebration. It is with your sponsorship that we are able to produce events that inspire, educate, commemorate, and celebrate our community, our culture, and our values.
