Capital City Pride 2018 – Performance and Event Schedule

COMPLETE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

OVERVIEW

Capital City Pride hosts the largest small-town pride festival in the Pacific Northwest. Pride brings together the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and allied communities to affirm and celebrate LGBTQ identity. The Capital City Pride Parade & Festival are family-friendly events that are free and open to the public.

Entertainment in 2018 includes The Sexbots, an artist who combines neoclassical and modern dance. Also returning this year will be the vaudevillean drag troupe Caravan of GLAM from Portland, which recently appeared on America’s Got Talent.

Pride Parade, scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 10, is always the highlight of Pride. Entries will include flashy floats, marching contingents representing various segments of the LGBTQ community, drag queens, such faith groups as local churches, and families and allies who support equality and respect for the LGBTQ community.

The Pride Festival, at Heritage Park near Capital Lake, will host a variety of vendors, 100 food and craft booths and a colorful family-activity center.
