Frederick Pride is celebrating its 7th year in 2018! This year’s festival takes place Saturday, June 23, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., once again at Carroll Creek Linear Park in beautiful, historic downtown Frederick. We are anticipating up to 7,000 attendees and over 100 participating organizations!

There will be bands, drag, DJ, dancing, and more live acts at the amphitheater. At the Market Street venue there will be smaller acts, drag, DJ dancing, and more. There will be organized youth sports and craft activities compliments of The Frederick Center Youth Group. For accompanied younger kids there will be face painting and other activities in the Kids tent. The program will be full, there is no way to see it all. The food court will be located above the amphitheater, the beer and wine area next to them. Be sure to visit the official TFC Pride Store at the top of the amphitheater for all your Pride paraphernalia, proceeds support all the programs of our local LGBTQ community center (including this event). The information booth will be under the centrally located big suspension bridge, next to the library. See the website for parking garage info.

A whole week of activities! Related events include Silent Auction Party, Proclamation Ceremony at City Hall, Pride Film Festival, Pride Interfaith Ecumenical Service at nearby Grace UCC, and the Pride After Party.

Frederick Pride is organized by The Frederick Center: a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to support, educate, link, organize, and provide outreach to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community of central Maryland. We cherish our allies. We offer weekly youth meetings, an adult transgender meeting, free HIV test kits, this annual Frederick Pride, the annual Welcoming Frederick all-day education/best-practices conference, LGBTQ sensitivity and awareness training for organizations, a group for parents of transgender children, plus more.
