– “What is Pride?”
“Since 1991, Capital City Pride has hosted the annual Pride festival in Washington State’s capital which draws nearly 15,000 people for a parade and festival in downtown Olympia. Pride serves as the annual watershed event for the LGBTQ and allied communities, offering entertainment, a vibrant array of food, craft and community booths, a family fun area and the ever-popular Pride Parade. Perhaps more important than the all the rainbows, music and festivities, Pride is a weekend long gathering of friends and family, bringing us all together to celebrate our fabulous community.”

“Why here?”
“The Olympia-based Pride was the first small town festival to emerge beyond the relative safety of the big city of Seattle and plant roots in a little community, population 36,000 in 1991. It’s no mistake that Capital City Pride was fostered in the liberal City of Olympia.”
