First and foremost, thank you so much for your continued support of River City Pride.
It is our heartbroken responsibility to announce the cancellation of our in-person Festival & Parade on October 23.
Instead, we will be hosting an online Virtual Event. (See the above post)
Our board has consulted with local health officials, and due to the rise and seriousness of the COVID-19 variants, it is very clear that proceeding with an event that would gather so many people in one place would not be in the best interest of our community. Safety has always been and will continue to be our top priority.
The LGBTQ+ community is disproportionately impacted by immuno-compromising conditions that make it even more clear that it is our duty to protect our attendees, volunteers, and team.
As your Pride organization, we are charged with pursuing the greater good, no matter how difficult the decision.
Again, thank you for your unwavering support of River City Pride. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or need information.
