Building on Success
Last year’s festival was our largest ever — an estimated 12,000-15,000 people. Our rich mix of vendors and exhibitors were a big part of that: 75 Merchants, Services, Food & Beverage Vendors; 40 Justice, Politics, Community Services, LGBTQ Social & Support Groups; 53 Welcoming Employers, Health Care Providers, and Communities of Faith. This year, we are adding a third stage for spoken word and advocacy. We also plan to expand on our very successful Welcoming WNC Procession.
