Yakima Pride Festival
Saturday, July 25th, 2020
A Virtual Yakima Pride Festival celebration is scheduled to take place on July 25th, 2020.
Yakima Pride organizers are working to bring our communities and organizations together for this Yakima Pride event that will use online platforms to deliver a Pride Festival in which everyone can participate, wherever they are in the Yakima Valley.
It will include musical performances, speeches, and key messages from human rights activists and much, much, more!
*Portions of the event will be live-streamed and others prerecorded.
We need community and connection more than ever and this gives us an opportunity to both connect and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community’s resilience in the face of this pandemic and the true spirit of Pride.
The coronavirus pandemic has prompted the cancellation or postponement of hundreds of Pride celebrations around the world.
The unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 mean that most Pride celebrations will not take place as planned in 2020, but we’re determined that this won’t stop us from coming together as a united, strong LGBTQ+ community. Above all, we will show our resilience and determination that Yakima Pride will be back bigger and stronger than ever before in 2021.
