LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Due to the pandemic, the annual Kentuckiana Pride Festival and Parade is scheduled for October instead of its traditional third weekend of June.
The Kentuckiana Pride Foundation Board of Directors announced on Wednesday the 2021 event will be held Oct. 8-9 at the Big Four Lawn (Waterfront Park).
Organizers say holding the events later in the year will provide more time to ensure a safe event for attendees, staff, vendors and entertainers.
Organizers say they’re working closely with city officials and will strictly enforce and follow all CDC guidelines.
The Kentuckiana Pride Board says having the festival and parade the weekend before National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 is a great way to celebrate the day and encourage attendees to be themselves freely and celebrate in unity at the festival and parade.
More information, including a detailed safety plan, will be released closer to the event.
The KPF says its mission is to promote social, economic, and health equity of Kentuckiana’s sexual and gender minorities, advocating pride, celebrating achievements, and educating leaders.
