Thank you for considering a booth at our 8th annual Pride Festival! Pride Fest is an opportunity to bring the LGBTQ+ community and their families and the rest of the community together for a relaxing and fun afternoon. After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID Pandemic, Pride Fest 2022 had over 3,000 in the rain!
Pride Fest 2023 runs from 1:00 PM-11:00 PM on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette, Michigan. All festivities will make use of the open green space of Lower Harbor. Along with various vending and informational booths, we will also have live entertainment and activities throughout the day.
Set up can begin at 9:00 AM, your booth must be ready for customers by 1:00 PM. You will be able to unload your vehicle at your booth space and park nearby during the event. You’re welcome to stay through the evening drag show until the park closes (and the party ends) at 10:45 PM. We advise closing up your booth before it gets dark due to limited light at Lower Harbor.

The event will be advertised through social media, posters, radio mentions, and community calendars. You are encouraged to advertise to your own customers, friends, and family. It is important to get the word out about the new festival!
