Your Guide to Local Music at Pride

Two days. Three stages. Dozens of performers. The soundtrack to Pride weekend is eclectic and diverse and awesome. You know, just like Pride itself. All shows are free and will have an ASL interpreter. We’ve collected the best of everything from comedy to cabaret and everything in between. So plan your weekend accordingly, and come prepared to dance (or laugh, or sing along…depending on the show).
