Going into its 18th year, Bisbee Pride has a lot in store for visitors. Events will span four days and take place throughout the city.
“What makes this celebration special is its uniqueness in the fact that we aren’t a typical Pride festival, where there is a gate fee to get in and you are enclosed in one event venue," said Ramon Garcia, president and CEO of Bisbee Pride.
"Here people can come and go, they can go into the shops, there are food trucks but people can also go to local restaurants and bars throughout the day or to their accommodations to cool down and then come back out.”
Bisbee Pride kicks off on Thursday, June 16, with a "Gay"mes Night. Friday highlights include a Pride thanksgiving service and a street dance with a DJ. Saturday is packed with the Pride parade on Main Street, a drag brunch show and live entertainment on the Bisbee Pride main stage. The weekend closes on Sunday with Twisted Sister Bingo and a tea dance.
Most events are free; selected events including the street dance and the main-stage show and dance have an entrance fee.
