Charlotte Pride Scavenger Hunt
July 24-August 2, 2020
A City-wide Virtual 'Vendor Fair'
30 Pride Sites You can Support!
What is the Charlotte Pride Scavenger Hunt?
- The Charlotte Pride Scavenger Hunt is your way to support local LGBTQ-owned and -affirming businesses, nonprofits, and community spaces, in lieu of our traditional vendor fair at the in-person Charlotte Pride Festival, canceled this year due to COVID-19.
- The Scavenger Hunt is a citywide virtual “vendor fair.” You can visit any of the 30 Pride Sites to get a small, free token, trinket, or gift, all while supporting local businesses and community organizations!
What happens at each Pride Site?
- Pride Sites will be active from July 24 – August 2 during the listed business or availability hours (see the map and listing below on this page).
- Each site is different, and may offer you different deals or specials or other ways to support or interact with them.
- But every Pride Site will have some kind of free, small token, trinket, or gift! The more sites you visit, the more of these small trinkets you can collect! Just like visiting booths at the Charlotte Pride Festival!
How do I participate?
- Just take a look at the map and list of locations below and pick a day (or more than one) to explore the city!
- Be sure to wear a mask and take other COVID-19 precautions, including social distancing!
- Wear some Pride or other rainbow gear while you’re out! Take photos! Share on social media and tag us @cltpride on Twitter or Instagram!
- Take a video of you visiting a Pride Site in your Pride or rainbow gear and submit that video as your virtual Charlotte Pride Parade video! Click here for more details.
