Community Pride Festival 2021 is Saturday, October 9th at Mayme Moore Park
There’s so many ways to be a part of the 2021 festival!
Are you a fan of Community Pride? Lend us a few hours of your time! The Community Pride Festival takes a lot of work from a lot of different people to be a success. Even if you didn’t have the time commitment to be a core organizer this year, there’s TONS to do around the day of the festival. Festival volunteer teams include setting up and tearing down Mayme Moore, facilitating smooth flow of entertainers and performers, decorating the park, helping folks find parking, childcare, trash pickup, and more. We’ll start contacting volunteers to connect with their teams in August. Share the shortcut link with others at bit.ly/FTPhelp!
If you want to contribute to the Community Pride Festival as a tabling organization or food/goods vendor, applications are open for folks of all kinds who want to show up for their community! We’re looking for organizations for our community resource fair, independent businesses who want to sell their wares, and food trucks to feed the happy people! You can sell your homemade goods, give away community resource guides, charge for body painting or tarot readings, whatever it is you want. We want to help our LGBTQ+ BIPOC community be seen and supported. Fill out our application now, and we’ll start settling spots sometime in August. Share the link with friends at bit.ly/FTPvend.
If you want to perform for the Community Pride Festival as an artist or performer, sign up here! We welcome entertainers of all sorts, from dancers to DJs to poets to comedians to bands or solo musicians. Express yourself on stage however you are! We make a strong effort to pay all of our performers for their work and talents and as with all Community Pride events, we prioritize BIPOC artists. Apply with the link below, or share the link with the creative hams in your life: bit.ly/FTPartists .
Though Pride Month events are over, our organizing team could still use help as we switch gears into festival season! Most of all we need support with our Logistics, Comms/Marketing, and Outreach teams. See team descriptions and sign yourself up to volunteer behind-the-scenes through the link below.
