Become a Patron of Pride

We have worked hard to retain our festival’s local character.  We developed the Patron of Pride program to enable local organizations and area residents to show their support for the festival and for our community programs.  We apply all net proceeds from the festival to support our programs and partners who serve western North Carolina’s LGBTQA community.

[Note: We ask larger organizations – especially nationals and regionals – to refer to our corporate sponsorship program.]
