Blue Ridge Pride 2017 is a chance for the whole LGBTQIA community to educate, advocate, and most importantly, celebrate! Beginning on Sunday, September 24 and culminating with a daylong celebration on Saturday, September 30, there will be a huge range of Pride-related events throughout Asheville. Check out the calendar of events here!
WNCAP is very proud to be a Gold Sponsor of Blue Ridge Pride, and we’ll be participating in the festival in a few different ways. First, on Wednesday, September 27, we will be at the Pride 2017 Family Picnic from 3pm-7pm in Weaver Park. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided. We’re providing, naturally, the “condom-ints” (and yes, we will really be bringing condoms in addition to the ketchup and mustard). Attendees are encouraged to bring side dishes to eat and musical instruments to play. Be sure to RSVP on the Family Picnic Facebook Page so there will be plenty of food!
During the main Pride Festival on Saturday, September 30, WNCAP will have a tent on S. Market Street, smack dab in the middle of the festival. While you’re walking around enjoying food, drinks, and entertainment from the wide range of vendors who will be there, stop by and visit us for some HIV prevention and advocacy!
