This will be a free event open to all, with a requested donation at the door. Visitors in town for the weekend are welcome.
If you would like to support the event, please go to the DONATE tab to make a donation in advance and learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
We can’t do all this without our LGBTQ+ community pitching in to help. We will need volunteers to help us on committees such as: Sponsorships and Fundraising, Volunteers and Operations, Vendor Coordination, Marketing and Communications and more. Prior experience in these areas is good but not required – we will teach you!
