About the event

Cost/Entry fee: $0

The Pride Big Rapids festival is a welcoming event; having both time and space to come together with friends, family, and loved ones, to recognize the past and current struggles along with future possibilities of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

We believe this event will not only improve the lives of the 2SLGBTQIA+ area residents, promote inclusion and acceptance, but also become a community favorite for years to come.

Our one-day celebration includes a beer tent, live music, a drag show, food vendors, and more. We’re providing a safe environment for all with educational booths. There are lots of ways you can get involved and show your support: monetary donations, in-kind donations, volunteer, etc.

We’re excited to celebrate the diversity of all in our Big Rapids area!
