Knox Pridefest 2018 is an open (and free) celebration of music, celebration and speakers focused on promoting Equality and Inclusion of ALL people. This year it will be held at the same venue as last year, the Mary Costa lawn next to Knoxville Coliseum in downtown Knoxville on June 23rd, 2018 from 12pm-8pm. The Pride parade is at 11 am.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, vendors will have the opportunity to display information about their organizations and/or business, sell or handout items of interest and interact with our community to promote inclusion and equality for the LGBTQ citizens of Knoxville and surrounding areas.

In order to ensure the safety of everyone and to comply with our obligations please be aware of the following:
*All bags entering the festival grounds are subject to search.
*Coolers are NOT permitted.*
*Weapons are prohibited.
*You may not bring alcoholic beverages into the festival or carry them out with you.
*In the event of a weather emergency we will evacuate everyone into the parking structure adjacent to the lawn.

You may bring folding\camp chairs and small awnings are permitted, but only in designated areas. Leashed dogs are permitted, but please clean up after your pet. We reserve the right to have you move or remove the awnings\chairs\pets to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all our guests.

*If medically necessary please contact us at info@knoxvillepridefest.com to arrange an exception.

 

To all Attendees, 

 

We hear and understand your concerns surrounding safety at the parade and festival with regards to the protesters that will be in attendance.  Please know that KPD will be present as in past years at both events to ensure safety.  While it may be difficult to do so, we ask that you please not engage with the protesters as it further fuels their speech and actions.  The day is one of love and acceptance and for our community to gather and celebrate being our true selves.  We look forward to spending the day with each of you and always remember, LOVE TRUMPS HATE.

Having folding chairs out of bags will help with speed for KPD security checks.
