Cincinnati Pride celebrates 40 year anniversary with a community festival | Events
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati will show its pride for the LGBT community with a parade, fireworks and 80's pop star Debbie Gibson.
Cincinnati Pride is an annual celebration of community, progress, and individuality. This year Cincinnati celebrates its 40th anniversary of Pride.
The celebration on Saturday, June 29 will kick off with a parade that begins at 2pm at 7th St and Culvert Street and will proceed down Vine Street, pass Fountain Square, pass The Banks and end at Sawyer Point where the festival will be held.
“Pride is ultimately about expression and celebration of self, community, and inclusion. Much like other events in Cincinnati like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Oktoberfest, we are proud of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going,” said Steve Newsome, spokesman for Cincinnati Pride.
Debbie Gibson, the headline entertainment, will appear at 8pm on the Kroger stage at Sawyer Point along with many local talents like singer Jonathan Zeng, Drag Queens & Kings, and others.
The night will end with the Pride fireworks show at Serpentine Wall beginning at 9:45pm.
