This year marks Kalamazoo’s 11th Annual Pride Event and the two-day festival will take place on Friday, June 8th and Saturday, June 9th, 2018 at the Arcadia Creek Festival Site in downtown Kalamazoo.
With the goal of more entertainment, more vending options, and more family-friendly activities, we’re hoping to make this the best Pride yet! Please join us in celebrating Kalamazoo Pride 2018, which is the largest fundraiser for OutFront Kalamazoo, supporting efforts in civic engagement and LGBTQ programs like our booming youth group, Connections.
We are still looking for sponsors and vendors! It is because of the generous support of the Southwest Michigan community that we are able to serve our community. Contact the Pride Coordinator at [email protected] for a sponsorship packet or more information.
Signup is closed, but you can still check out the list of finalists and all the other info for this event by clicking the button below.
