Pride 2017 is coming up soon – Saturday, September 16, 2017! The schedule is coming together, and will include more fun with drag queens, the Doggie Drag Show, community and craft booths and a Saturday night dance with the Illusion Band! We’re working on important details and needs, so please think about helping us if you can!
At this point, we really need vendors for the fair, so please spread the word! Nonprofits pay $15 for a booth space, for-profits pay $30 and food vendors pay $50 (includes utilities). Also, since the city lost their canopies, we need to borrow canopies on that day too!
We still need to raise funds to pay for entertainers and equipment! Help us have a great PRIDE festival on September 16th 2017 in Silver City by helping us find vendors, canopies and by donating. You can donate to us via the #RuralPride Campaign via GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-have-pride-in-silver-city!
Attention local artisans, local business owners, & service providers!

Thanks to our great float committee, LGBTQ Grant County will have a Stonewall Rebellion Heroes float in the Silver City 4th of July parade! The float committee is making progress, but still needs help with the work, lawn chairs, and people to walk or bike beside the float. Come to the next float meeting at 1pm on Sunday, 6/25 at the office (211B North Texas St)to find out more!!!
We are also going to have a double booth at Gough Park, with several carnival games (fish bowl toss, bowling, basketball toss and more). We will need booth volunteers for July 4 (9am-4pm) and with assembling the booth on the day before the parade (July 3rd at 5pm at Gough Park). Please bring your kids / grandkids to enjoy our games!
