Essex Pride Festival

Join the Essex Pride Committee at the first Essex Pride Festival to celebrate, honor, and hold space for their LGBTQIA+ friends, neighbors, loved ones, and family. 

The day begins at 1pm with a rainbow ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a walking/rolling parade through Maple Street Park. We’ll kick off the free all-ages Festival with Vermont’s chapter of Drag Story Hour featuring Emoji Nightmare and Katniss Everqueer, and an afternoon filled with performances by local artists and musicians, including youth from Essex High School. Throughout the day, there will be vendors, local organizations, and a Community Canvas to which they invite everyone to contribute. They’ll end the event with a joyful and celebratory dance party with GAYBAR.
