Save the date for Chaska’s annual Pride Picnic, Saturday, June 17 from 3-6 pm at McKnight Park! This will be the third year for this Chaska celebration, a collaboration between the Chaska Human Rights Commission (HRC), Chaska High School Gender and Sexuality Alliance, and the Chaska Parks and Recreation department.

The Pride picnic is a family-friendly, community event where folks can gather in one of Chaska’s public spaces to celebrate their LGBTQ community and the rich diversity they bring to Chaska. This Pride event is unique in that it is planned in collaboration with local high school student members of the Chaska High School Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club, so there are a lot of activities centered around youth and creativity – tie-dying, face painting, jewelry-making, and even a community art project that everyone is invited to participate in! 

The event will include free ice cream (and a non-dairy alternative) provided by the HRC along with food truck options. The Carver County Library will be present as well as some local businesses and organizations. A DJ will be there as well to provide the backdrop and keep the energy going throughout the afternoon!

Says the Human Rights Commission, “This is really about building community, and making sure that our LGBTQ residents and their friends and families feel seen, valued, and supported. This is just our third year, and we keep growing, so the HRC hopes that it continues to be an event that people want to attend.”
