This will be PrideFest’s 5th year with Saturday events at Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill and the 2nd year of running the Broadway Street/Capitol Hill Pride event on the main drag of Seattle’s longtime LGBTQ home neighborhood.

This will be their first year totally in charge of producing the event.
