Our parade begins at the south end of Church Street and ends at Battery Park where the festival is held.

The Pride Festival is one big party in Battery Park following the parade. It’s a place for the entire community – LGBTQ+ and ally – of all ages, races, and backgrounds to come together. Colorful, showstopping performers (Drag! Dance! Comedy! Poetry! Burlesque!) will be sure to entertain on stage while the park is filled with fabulous vendors with info and activities (and food!) for all.

Visit Pridevt.org for more info

Since 1983, thousands have come together to celebrate the rich diversity that is the LGBTQ community of Vermont. We anticipate an even larger gathering this year. We hope you'll join us!

First Friday: Winter Wonderland

Sleigh belles (pretend to) sing, are you listening?
At Higher Ground, queens are glistening
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight
Partying at a Winter Wonderland

Gone away are your worries
Here to stay are the flurries
DJs play the songs
As we dance along
Partying at a Winter Wonderland
In the Showcase Lounge we'll be shining
Glitter, bowties, heels, and a crown
They'll say are you ready
and up the stairs we'll go climbing
To grace the stage
all clad in our sparkling gowns

Later on, we'll perspire
As we dance with ones we admire
Don't be afraid 
To attend this fun event that we've made
Partying at a Winter Wonderland

YES, come party with us at First Friday: Winter Wonderland!

DJs Llu and VU will be supplying the sounds, with special drag performances through the night. As always, your hosts Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne will perform and be in-house entertaining you all night long.
