In October 2017, we set out to deliver an amazing PRIDE parade and festival to our community, the first of its kind on this scale. And with your support, what an incredible, historic day September 15, 2018 became!
Now we’re pleased to announce the 2019 TriPride Parade and Festival will be held in downtown Kingsport on September 7, 2019. The event is being designed with the theme “Look How Far We’ve Come.” TriPride organizers are keeping a similar format to last year’s event. There will be a series of activities during Pride week, leading up to the parade and festival on Saturday, September 7. Live entertainment, vendors, exhibitors and food trucks will be present. The festival will take place in the heart of downtown Kingsport and will be free to the public.
TriPride is a nonprofit organization formed to build a stronger and more inclusive community across Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. That’s been our goal since day one. We celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and welcome allies, supportive nonprofit organizations, faith congregations and local businesses to become our community partners.
