First Ever Cville Pride Festival This Saturday!

Posted on September 13, 2012 by


It’s about time! Come be part of history – Charlottesville’s first-ever Pride Festival!

This isn’t just your average festival – sure, there will be food (Whole Foods truck! Pantheon Popsicles! Fellini’s #9! Mountain Cove Vineyards!) and local music (Bella Morte & more!) but also…

  • Drag performances – queens and kings workin’ it,
  • Derby Dames’ adult face painting,
  • Lady arm wrestlers – come thumb wrestle them!
  • Moxie hair salon tent craziness,
  • Two rainbow nail salons,
  • Rainbow cupcakes in the Edgecomb’s lounge,
  • Jewelry and art vendors,
  • Tons of raffles to win t-shirts, gift baskets, and more,
  • Moon bounce for kids of ALL ages,
  • After-party at Escafe!

This isn’t just a party for LGBTQ people – this is an all-Charlottesville community celebration of everyone’s right to be who they are. Organizations and businesses supporting same-sex equality will be there providing resources and information, too. People from all over Virginia will be there… so don’t miss it!

When and where?

2-6 p.m. at Lee Park, on 1st and Market St.
