The Capital Pride Festival is Sunday, June 11th, and we are looking for volunteers to do outreach at our booth from 12 PM to 7 PM. The festival is on Pennsylvania Avenue between 3rd and 7th Streets NW. At our booth, you’ll have the opportunity to reach many members of the community as you tell them about the programs and services that are offered at The DC Center, and how they can get involved in the future. The event is a lot of fun, and you’ll be able to hear the amazing live performances happening not far from us on the Main Stage. Plus, you’ll get your very own The DC Center tee-shirt! (Please make sure to indicate your size when you select your ticket.) We will assign shifts at a later date but if you have a preference, please feel free to tell us!
Join us on the historic Pennsylvania Avenue for the 42nd Annual Pride Festival in the Nation’s Capital! Come for a day full of entertainment, music, food, drink, education, and celebration. The festival is open to everyone, and there is no fee for entry; however donations are very much encouraged and appreciated! The Festival is family-friendly. Due to large crowds and very hot asphalt, we recommend that pets stay at home. The Pride Festival includes three stages of national and local talent and will host 300 exhibitors including local and community groups, national sponsors, local businesses, food vendors, restaurants, and businesses looking to promote their services to our community.
Given the events at Pulse in Orlando in 2016, we weren’t quite sure what to expect on Sunday at the Capital Pride Festival & Concert. What we found was a community that wanted to be together more than ever. This desire to share in Pride fueled a day that became more necessary than ever. 2017 will be no different. We will assemble to remember, celebrate and fight on to ensure our communities are safe and for human rights and social justice.
