This year the celebration has been trimmed to a one-day event with other festivities occurring throughout the weekend. Pride will begin with a pre-pride kickoff party Friday night, June 21 at the historic Urban Onion Restaurant and Lounge, 116 Legion Way (across from Sylvester Park).
The ever-popular Pride Parade begins at noon Saturday and goes down Capital to Sylvester Park. Entertainment in the park will be headlined by the widely popular Kim Archer Band.Other local entertainers including Pride Idol winners and contestants and a bevy of drag queens will take to the stage as the South Sound Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community celebrates great milestones like the recent passage of marriage equality and expresses thanks to the many great friends and allies in Thurston County and surrounding communities.
Pride Day has grown since 1991 to become one of the most vibrant community festivals in the Thurston County area. We now draw nearly 15,000 people into downtown Olympia for a series of events that truly brings together all parts of the community: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and straight from around the Pacific Northwest.
