ROC Pride unites and engages individuals and organizations to educate and support the Rochester LGBTQ and Allied Community, and to promote a positive image in the greater Rochester area through community activities and services. In collaboration with government officials, services, private corporations and celebrities, ROC Pride continues to raise positive awareness of the Greater Rochester LGBTQ community and raises needed funds for the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley.
This year, ROC Pride Fest returns to Cobbs Hill Park. ROC Pride Fest features dozens of entertainment performances on several stages and many exhibitors showcasing a huge variety of food options, shopping opportunities, and community resources.
