We want everyone to enjoy PrideFest, so if the $5 entrance fee represents a hardship for you or your family, you can connect with local LGBT organizations to apply for complimentary admission.
We encourage you to enjoy your time in the park by bringing sealed water (1 per person, not for resale), a picnic for you and your family, chairs, umbrellas, your friendly leashed pet, and anything else you may need to make PrideFest your favorite thing you did this summer.
Items prohibited: No weapons of any kind, any unsealed beverage, and unleashed or aggressive pets. We will conduct searches at the gate to make sure everyone can enjoy a safe time at the park. We have teamed up with CSPD to create a plan of action for security and have, we believe, taken every precaution to ensure safety for everyone.
