Saint Cloud Pride
Even though Saint Cloud seems to celebrate queerness and pride all year, September 11th-17, expect to see all of your favorite Saint Cloud Pride events back in a big way!
St. Cloud Pride Chair, Cody Klimek and his team have been hard at work making a wonderful schedule of pride events to celebrate this year. To start off, St. Cloud will have “Show Your Colors” all week, where, according to Klimek, “We encourage the community to display their Pride Flags and other decorations outside their businesses and homes during St. Cloud Pride Week… to show community support of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
St. Cloud Pride kicks off with a Pride Skate, Monday, September 11th, and then continues with many more daily events; including a Pride and Peace walk on Tuesday, Pride Trivia on Thursday, Youth Pride Dance Party and a SCSU Drag Show on Friday, Pride in the Park on Saturday at Lake George/Eastman Park, where Klimek says, “Rain or Shine, we will be here! This family friendly Pride event will have vendors, food vendors, games, art, and musical acts on an outdoor stage, including a Puppy Parade where people can enter their canines in a costumed puppy parade,” and a 21+ Drag show on Saturday night, with an afterparty to follow.
The week concludes with the St. Cloud Pride Parade on Sunday, September 17th.
Don’t miss out on all the fun and support from local businesses and organizations. It’s like Klimek says, “It is a time to celebrate our uniqueness, our art, and love.”
