Some notes about the festival:
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.
There is a $5 entrance fee (weekend pass) to help offset costs associated with PrideFest, including enhanced security to ensure a safe place for festival-goers. 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.
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.
