PrideFest 2016 to Let Love Shine on Brown’s Island

Virginia Pride’s mission is to be a vehicle for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender awareness, networking and education. This Saturday starting at noon kicks off PrideFest 2016 and it also becomes about celebrating the amazing diversity in the Commonwealth, and enjoying a ton of music, adult beverages and food. On the adult beverages side don’t forget to get a taste or two or three of the exclusive collaboration between Ardent Craft Ales and Center of the Universe, Georgie Porgie.

The event is free and the weather looks to be great. A great way to spend a Saturday down on Brown’s Island.

Your 2016 PRIDEFEST HEADLINER is Mary Lambert! Mary Lambert is an American singer, songwriter, and spoken word artist. Lambert is the featured artist Macklemore and Ryan Lewis single, “Same Love”
