Day of Pride

A Day of Events Celebrating Pride

On June 9th, 2018, you're invited to join us in celebrating PRIDE in historic downtown Texarkana. This event will consist of a Pride Parade followed by a Pride Festival.

We're excited to announce that Stephanie Rice will be serving as the Grand Marshal of the parade this year, AND will be putting on a full concert during the festival!

We hope you'll stay for the festival and check out some of the great vendors who have signed up to be a part of the event.

DRAG SHOW! During the Festival there will also be a drag show with some of the area's best performers!
