For more information, click here.Fremont Pride is taking place on July 9, 2022. This year we are beginning our celebration with a group wedding ceremony! We know it's an unsure time right now with so many liberties being under attack, so we wanted to provide you with a fun avenue to tie the knot with your partner, surrounded by nothing but love and support! Couples will be invited to ride on the Fremont Pride float.
Directly after the ceremony, we will begin our parade! Step-off is at 11:00am. We will begin at the corner of State St. and Front St., and follow Tiffin Ave, down to Roger Young. Parade participants are encouraged to use the bike trail entrance.
The festival will begin at Walsh Park at 12:00pm. Admission is $5 for guests 12 and older. Guests under 12 are welcome at no charge. Tickets are available ahead of time by clicking here, or at the gate.
We're encouraging attendees to bring folding chairs if you'd like to sit and relax. Due to space, parking will not be permitted inside Walsh Park with the exception of our disabled guests. For all other parking, please use the Rodger Young Park and GLCAP Stricker parking lots.
At 12:30 Stevie Phoenix will give out a welcome to everyone, and directly after we will begin the pageant presentation! Be sure to get there so you can meet all of your contestants vying for the titles of Mr., Miss, and Mx. Fremont Pride!
After that, sit back and relax as Teddy Martin, original hip hop artist from Columbus, Ohio puts on a mini concert!
Around 1:45 the drag, burlesque, circus, and all sorts of entertainment will be taking the stage! The stage will be packed with amazing talent all day.
At 2:45, Jim Obergefell, the namesake of marriage equality and candidate for Ohio House, will be addressing everyone.
At 3pm, all of the Mr. and Mx. Fremont Pride contestants will present their talent. At 4:30 Sir Dallan G, a jazzy band from Brooklyn, will be taking the stage! The Miss contestants will then show off their talent at 6pm, and we will crown our three winners at 8pm!
The festival ends at 9pm.
Also available all day will be several food and beverage options. We'll have food trucks with tacos, burgers, funnel cakes, snow cones, and more! All food will be available by purchase at each individual truck/tent. Drinks will be available by drink tickets ONLY. There will several alcoholic and non-alcoholic options all day, including a Family Fun Zone with only non-alcoholic options available, as well as a dunk tank, water activities, yard games, and a sectioned off area for our neurodivergent guests who may feel overstimulated. We will have headphones and stimulation/fidget toys available.
Join us at Da Love Pitt for the after party! Riley Poppyseed, Clinica Deprecious, London Desmond Asia, Ericka Sanchez, and Mary Jane will be tearing the house down along with Stevie, so if you're not ready to stop the party, please come on out!
