Carrollton Pride Festival 2024

Saturday, September 28 | 11 AM - 4 PM

University of West Georgia | Carrollton, GA

A Festival for ALL in the Community to celebrate PRIDE!

 

The Carrollton Pride Festival is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community in the west Georgia area. Enjoy talented artists showcasing their work, food trucks providing a variety of things to eat - and a community market featuring local merchandise vendors, advocacy groups & health and wellness partners of the LGBTQ+ community. This is a family-friendly event where everyone is welcome to come as they are and celebrate diversity. Let's come together to show our support and spread positivity!

 

Our event is Free and open to ALL! We aim to uplift members of the LGBTQ+ community and their families, friends, and allies, while also bringing new businesses, professionals, individuals, charities, religious spaces, and public organizations to our table.  Come join us for a day filled with love, acceptance, and pride!

Community Partnerships & Access to Resources

In rural west Georgia, access to resources are limited for the queer community.  Having regional and national LGBTQIA+ resources in a room side-by-side with affirming local churches, healthcare providers who respect their patients’ identities, and the area’s largest employers who value diversity & inclusion, we can be a conduit for the LGBTQIA+ and the community at large and empower everyone to be their authentic selves and live their lives to the fullest.

Retail Vendor & Food Markets 

Last year, the Carrollton Pride Festival attracted at least 1200 attendees from at least nine surrounding counties, bringing thousands of shopping and dining dollars from outside the community to our 40+ festival retail vendors and to the greater dining, entertainment & retail businesses in our local economy.   This year, expect more vendors, more diversity in products and services and more food vendors to chose from!

Celebration & Representation
of the LGBTQ+ Community

​We aim to raise awareness and promote understanding of LGBTQIA+ issues and believe that it is essential to celebrate the diversity and resilience of our community.  We seek to foster a sense of belonging and connection within our community, creating a safe and supportive space for individuals to express themselves and connect with others who share their experiences.

Awareness & Advocacy for LGBTQ+ Equality

The Carrollton Pride Festival is an opportunity for community members to connect with advocates who support policies and laws that promote equality and protect the rights of LGBTQIA+ individuals.

 

We believe that when members of the LGBTQIA+ individuals, community leaders & community members can have good-faith conversations without fear of judgment or condemnation, we can combat and repair bigotry and become a conduit for change.

ATTEND

Enjoy live entertainment, a curated artisan/vendor market, food trucks, and so much more.
