Charlotte Pride is postponing all August and September events until October.
Previously scheduled Charlotte Pride Drag Pageant, Charlotte Pride Interfaith Service, Charlotte Pride Night! Concert Event and Pop-Up Pride Festival will all move to new October dates.
Charlotte Pride hopes this postponement will encourage all members of the community to take the initiative to get fully vaccinated and do their part to protect our community. Higher vaccination rates, lower positivity rates, and decreased community spread are essential for hosting our events at any point in 2021. We are calling on every member of our community to do their part — get vaccinated, wear masks, get tested.
Charlotte Pride community relief program
Charlotte Pride has launched a re-envisioned Community Relief Program, inspired from our 2020 COVID Relief Program of mini-grants. LGBTQ Charlotteans can receive up to $500 in direct emergency financial assistance. Certain eligibility requirements apply. The first assistance round is now open through Sept. 6.
