This free, family-friendly event offers people throughout Central VA and beyond the chance to celebrate and experience the diversity and vibrancy of the local LGBTQ community. There’s something for everyone: a children’s area, with a giant moon bounce, games, face-painting, balloons, and more; a beer and wine garden and food trucks; over 50 vendors representing businesses and organizations with resources, special offers, and interactive activities; Pride merchandise; music, dance, and drag entertainment all day long.
The high-energy party features a DJ dance party, a hip-hop showcase, singer-songwriters and breakdancers, rock bands, and several drag shows, headlined by Miss Symone Bishop, Miss South Carolina Pride.
