Central Arkansas Pride is thrilled to announce that we are taking 2020 PRIDE Fest VIRTUAL this year! Everyone is encouraged to participate by submitting a virtual clip.

The 8th annual 2020 Central Arkansas PRIDE Fest will still be on Saturday, October 17th. Our theme this year is “THRIVE With PRIDE”. This year’s event will be a fun AND safe PRIDE Fest celebrated together through an exciting new virtual format on Facebook Live. While we cannot celebrate together in-person due to COVID-19, the 2020 Central Arkansas PRIDE Fest will be packed with entertainment and engaging content demonstrating how we can “THRIVE With PRIDE” – and as a part of our community, we’d like for you or your organization to be part of the line-up!

As a community member or ally, we are asking you or your organization to provide an entertaining and/or informative video clip of 30 seconds to one (1) minutes or less. Your video submission can focus on your organization’s mission and purpose, provide an informative or encouraging message, highlight how we – LGBTQ+ and allies – collectively THRIVE together – or whatever theme or message you think is important for celebrating PRIDE. The tone and delivery is yours to decide. It can be a comedy sketch, display of talent, a demonstration or just an informative message or documentary – be creative! This is a family friendly event so all can enjoy our greatly talented and diverse community.

The virtual submission portal will be open starting August 3rd, 2020, and you can provide your submission on www.centralarkansaspride.com or by clicking this link [link to submission page.

Central Arkansas Pride will review each submission and include as many as time allows  within submission guidelines.
