CVILLE PRIDE FESTIVAL IS ON
The annual celebration of LGBTQ equality will happen as scheduled, rain or shine
Charlottesville, VA – Friday, Sept. 14, 2018 – Local nonprofit Charlottesville Pride Community Network (Cville Pride) wants to make sure everyone in the community knows that, despite the threat of Hurricane Florence this last week, they have not cancelled the 7th annual Cville Pride Festival.
“We’ve been in wait-and-see mode all week,” Lisa Green, festival director, says. “We’re happy to be able to reassure all the people who have been looking forward to the event that the show will go on.” Green says that she and the Pavilion organizers have been working closely together to ensure the safety of everyone who attends.
You Can’t Have a Rainbow Without Rain
And Green hopes that the weather won’t prevent would-be attendees from showing up. “Pride is going to be awesome this year, no matter what,” she says. “And you can’t have a rainbow without rain.”
The Cville Pride Festival takes place from 11-7, Saturday the 15th at the Sprint Pavilion, followed by an after party at Rapture. Discounts and specials are available to wearers of Pride wristbands all along the Downtown Mall and beyond.
