With a heavy heart, we are announcing the cancellation of Out! Raleigh Pride for 2020. As we’ve watched this pandemic sweep our world, we’ve paid close attention to how it has affected North Carolina, and the Triangle in particular. We faced a daunting question - can we host a Pride festival only some people can enjoy? Even if all the other moving pieces fell into place, such as North Carolina moving into the appropriate phase for us to host a large gathering, we still knew we could not in good conscious encourage attendance when so many groups are still vulnerable.
We have scheduled next year’s Out! Raleigh Pride and are excited to announce we have secured Fayetteville Street for Sunday, June 6th, 2021! It will be the first time we’ve celebrated Out! Raleigh during Pride month, and we are so hopeful everyone can come together and be in community again!
Please keep an eye on our website and social media for announcements of virtual events and make sure to visit the Virtual Vendor Fair to support our incredible vendors and sponsors! We are so grateful for all of you who have shown up through the years and know we will see you again soon!
With Love and Pride,
The Out! Raleigh Pride Committee
