Louisville to host Pride Festival in October
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (February 24, 2021) – The annual Kentuckiana Pride Festival and Parade will take place on Friday, October 8, and Saturday, October 9 at the Big Four Lawn, Waterfront Park. The festival and parade are typically held on the third weekend of June each year.
Moving the festival and parade dates to later in the year will allow for additional time to prep for safety protocols due to COVID-19. The Kentuckiana Pride Festival is working closely with city officials to strictly enforce and follow all CDC guidelines in place to plan and execute an event that is safe for all attendees.
Kentuckiana Pride board President Rodney Coffman stated “Safety is top priority on the list when it comes to all involved who make Kentuckiana Pride possible. Without our staff, crew, and all of you, there is no Kentuckiana Pride Festival. We are optimistic and very excited to get back out there to celebrate Pride together, in a safe and vigilant manner.”
With National Coming Out Day falling on October 11th this year, the Kentuckiana Pride Board cannot think of a better way to celebrate this momentous day by having the Kentuckiana Pride Festival and Parade the weekend before by encouraging attendees to be themselves freely and celebrate in unity at the festival and parade.
More information including a detailed safety plan will be released close to the event.
