THRIVE with PRIDE

Central Arkansas Pride is excited to announce a new name and location for PRIDE this year!

The Eighth Annual PRIDE will now be known as the Central Arkansas PRIDE Fest and Parade in the Argenta Historical District in North Little Rock on October 17, 2020. The Argenta Historical District offers us an expanded space for growth as a site for this year’s festival which will include live entertainment, a kid’s zone, vendors, and food trucks for all. 

We would like to take this time to invite and request you to participate in this parade and festival in support of the LGBTQ+ community in Arkansas.  It is our opportunity to be visible, out, network, and support each other.

The theme for this year’s PRIDE Fest and Parade is “THRIVE with PRIDE”!

We are currently working on a new parade route leading to the festival grounds on Main Street in North Little Rock. Staging will start at noon and the parade starts at 1pm. Details will be released as soon as we finalize plans. We are looking for exciting floats, enthusiastic walking groups, and individuals to celebrate!

Registration for the parade is open and free at www.lrpride.com/festival/parade/ the entry form is located at the bottom of the webpage. Please share with friends, businesses, and allies in the community to make this year’s PRIDE Parade a success! We are also accepting vendors at www.lrpride.com/festival/vendors/

This year has been especially difficult on us all in the community with the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. PRIDE started as a riot against injustice to our community. We just now have finally received a victory in equal employment rights as a community in the Supreme Court ruling of Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964. At this time, we are planning to host PRIDE and will consider everyone’s health with the pandemic as we proceed in the year.

The festival is free and open to all, donations are welcomed to continue our mission with scholarships and future events. The goal of Central Arkansas Pride is to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community’s history and culture. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspire, strengthen, and unite as we celebrate our diversity and inclusion.  Please feel free to contact me at parade@arpride.org to learn more or if you have questions.
