Blue Ridge Pride Festival
September 30, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 7:00 pm
On Saturday, September 30th, the Twelfth Annual Blue Ridge Pride Festival starts with a procession through the city of Asheville. We start gathering at 10AM across from 23 Grove Street. We will begin our procession at 10:30 am. Whether you are a business, a group, a congregation, community, family, solo or a pack of friends —join us on this half-mile journey! This procession is welcome to all who support the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. We are working with disability specialists to ensure this will be an accessible procession.
This year’s festival, while keeping true to Blue Ridge Pride’s core “ACES” Advocate, Community, Educate, Serve, we are highlighting our theme this year as ADVOCATE! We felt this year’s theme especially appropriate with the bad bills, anti-drag narrative and numerous other attacks against the LGBTQ+ community. We encourage you to make signs, carry a banner, wave your flags, and show your Pride!
Beer City Comic Con is honored to share the day with this inclusive and electrifying event! Learn more at www.blueridgepride.org
