Roc Pride 2015
Pull out your transponders, dust off your light sabers, and get ready for blast off to the 26th annual Pride Festival! We are thrilled to announce that our annual Rochester Pride weekend festivities will be held on the weekend of July 17-19 2015. This year’s theme is SciFi Pride: may the PRIDE be with you!
On Saturday July 18th, join intergalactic celebrity hosts Samantha Vega and DeeDee Dubois for an evening of music, dance, drag, and more! We are thrilled to welcome International Housewife Mrs. Kasha Davis from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 as the 2015 festival headliner. Tickets for festival entry will be $10 advance, $15 at the gate and will be available for purchase at a number of retail locations as well as through the Gay Alliance website. The 2015 Pride Parade will be on Saturday July 18th at 1pm and march from Park Avenue and to the festival site on Chestnut Street.
The annual Pride Picnic event will take place on July 19th at Genesee Valley Park. In the first years of the annual Picnic, the event was free to the community. We’ve decided to travel backwards in time and bring that tradition back to the future: this year, the Pride Picnic will be free! Festivities at the Picnic will include dancing in the Roundhouse, food truck vendors, and outdoor sports. ASL interpreting services and wheelchair accessible parking will be available at all Pride Weekend events.
We’ll see you there- and may the PRIDE be with you!
