  • What *should* I bring?

    • Your Photo ID if you plan to enjoy an alcoholic beverage
    • Cash if you want to skip the ATM (the bar is cash only!)
    • Sunscreen – Weather is likely to be in the 60s, but the UV Index will be *high*
    • Your best selves! Dress however helps you celebrate your Pride best!
  • I don’t identify as part of the Queer Community, can I still come?

    You don’t have to be a member of the Queer Community, just a supporter of it!

    Pride is a celebration! So as long as you’ve got your party pants on, we hope you’ll come and lift up the local Queer Community.

  • Can I bring my pet?

    This event is pet-friendly but please keep your pet leashed at all times. This ensures the safety of all festival-goers and their pets as well as your pet.

    Please be sure to clean up after your pet

    Keep in mind that festival will be loud at times. Consider the health of your pet when determining if the festival is a good fit for them!
