VENDORS

Online registration for all 2021 Pride Fest vendor/booths will be available in the coming months so stay tuned for your opportunity to join in on the historical Pride Fest Celebration! Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors made the tough but correct decision to cancel in-person Pride Fest so we held a month long virtual celebration that was super successful reaching 100k and engaging almost 30k people. 

2019 was a historical year of in-person event(s) with over 30k in attendance on Pride Fest Weekend, the largest festival in our 40+ years as an organization! We sold out all vendor spots with a waitlist and even though we plan to add more spaces in 2021, we fully expect for these to sell out and quickly so be sure to check in here periodically for up to date information. There will be an announcement of when vending will be open to the public so you should have ample notice.

Please see below for the type of vending options that will be available. If you have any questions prior to Capital City Pride opening up vendor applications, contact Mitch Kunert at pridefest@capitalcitypride.org and/or to stay up to date all things things Pride, including vending, just email Hilary Mullen at communications@capitalcitypride.org today to be added to our mailing list.
