Utah Pride Festival
June 4-7, 2015 - Washington Square
The Utah Pride Festival is excited to announce the theme for the 2015 festival: “Pride is ____.
“With all that has happened in the last year and all that still remains to be done, we know that Pride means many things to many people,” said Jen Parsons-Soran, Co-Director for the Festival. “It can be about fun, love, rainbows, and so many other things. We want to celebrate and embrace that diversity, because it is a huge part of what makes the Utah Pride Festival such a great event."
The Utah Pride Festival steering committee chooses a theme each year based on community suggestions, relevant current events and what most resonates with what the Utah Pride Festival wants to bring to the community.The 2015 Utah Pride Festival will be held June 4–7 primarily at Washington and Library Squares in downtown Salt Lake City. The Interfaith Service on Thursday, June 4 will be held at First Baptist Church, with the Utah Pride Parade happening the morning of Sunday, June 7. The plans for the 2015 Festival include changes to the schedule and a massive revamping of the festival grounds. The new schedule of events includes moving the rallies and marches to Friday night along with a kick-off party and opening ceremonies to follow the Grand Marshal Reception, and holding the Pride Day 5K Fun Run on the Parade route on Sunday morning. A new “East Village” will utilize more space on Library Square including a stage, the art zone and kid’s area.
