Nark Magazine has already announced (and sold out) their annual Pride Saturday Booze Cruise, various other producers have staked out dates/venues and now QUEER/BAR has announced a THREE DAY festival that’s happening both INSIDE the bar as well as outside, on 11th. Purr Cocktail Lounge, the beloved previous occupier of the space was well known for their Pride Saturday Outdoor Street Party but Queer/Bar is upping the ante by doing a festival on Friday, Saturday AND Sunday of Seattle LGBTQ Pride Weekend.
