Livermore, CA — Organizers of Livermore Pride — a local nonprofit dedicated to LGBTQ+ Community, Equity, and Inclusion — announce the lineup and activities for its annual Pride Festival, taking place on October 16, 2021 at Carnegie Park (2155 Third Street) in Livermore from 12:00-5:00 PM. The performance schedule includes live performances from CHEER SF, drag show with Charity Kase & Ava LaShay and friends, a Pooch Parade to compete for the title “Proudest Pup”, and several other local performing artists for a full afternoon of entertainment.
The Festival will feature a variety of food and drink options from local vendors and dozens of LGBTQ+ owned and allied businesses selling their Pride-themed or aligned wares and services. A crafts zone, lawn games, and an area showcasing local nonprofits, groups, and community services round out the offerings tailored to support a strong, healthy, and engaged community.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring our community together for a day of celebration and camaraderie. Ending isolation is one of our core tenets, and supporting our community with this annual festival is one of the best ways we can do that right now,” said Amy Rose, Executive Director, Livermore Pride. “It’s a way to support our community’s mental and physical health during what has been a devastating pandemic, and begin healing through cheer and joy.”
The festival is part of a full weekend of activities in Livermore celebrating the Queer community. Local entrepreneur Nadia Breiz is also hosting an 18+ burlesque event “Fortune’s Follies” on Friday, October 15th, and her popular monthly “Batch Marker’s Market” on Sunday, October 17th (also located at Carnegie Park). Both events have been curated to support and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community through its performing artists and local small businesses.
