PrideFest is a celebration of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer and Allied communities in and around the Wichita Kansas area.
We are currently in the planning stages for the 2016 Pride Festival. This year The Pride Festival will be held on Saturday September 24th & Sunday September 25th.
With the help of Cargill, one of our wonderful sponsors, we will have a Family Picnic on Saturday at O.J. Watson Park that is family-oriented and child-friendly. Later on Saturday night we will have a Block Party at the Mid-America All Indian Center and then finish the night off with a great Drag Show at Club Boomerang. Sunday will start off with worship services provided by Table of Hope MCC. We will then move to the steps of the Historic Sedgwick County Courthouse for a rally sponsored by Equality Kansas. After that we will start our parade and march at the Courthouse and finish up the Pride Festival at Mid-America All Indian Center. For a full schedule of times and locations please see the Festival Info tab to the left.
Buttons will be required for all events and will be $5.00 each and will be available from local Sponsors, The Center or from Button Salespeople the day of events. We will update with a list of locations that have buttons as soon as they are distributed.
We already have several vendors scheduled but we still have room for more. If you would like to be a food vendor or merchandise vendor for any of our events you can contact us at VendorDirector@WichitaPride.org .
We will again this year be printing a full color, full size Pride Guide. Ad space is still available if you are interested email us at CommunicationsDirector@WichitaPride.org .
We are a 501 (c)(3) and our planning meetings are every other Monday at 7pm. They’re open to the public at The Center of Wichita (800 N. Market, Wichita KS).
