Kitsap Pride’s week-long festivities include an LGBTQ+ film festival, Pride Party, and an expanded festival with community stage and beer garden

Kitsap Pride has announced that Frenchie Davis will headline their main stage! A Grammy nominated artist, Frenchie Davis became a household name as a finalist on “The Voice” and “American Idol.” She is also known for her work in on- and off-Broadway productions of Rent, Dreamgirls, and Ain’t Misbehavin’, among others.

Now in its 21st year, Kitsap Pride is scheduled for Saturday, July 15 in Bremerton’s Evergreen Park.

In addition to Davis, Kitsap Pride’s main stage will feature Purple Passion, a swing ensemble affiliated with the Rainbow City Marching Band; “Goddess of Electronic Psychedelic Soul” SassyBlack; and Guayaba, a Bremerton native and one of Seattle’s top queer artists.

For the first time, Kitsap Pride will host a second, community stage featuring performers predominantly from Kitsap County, including Queerly Beloved and their brand of gender-variety entertainment.

Also coming to this year’s Kitsap Pride: a new layout for the festival in Evergreen Park, which will include a beer garden in the closed street in view of the main stage.

Kitsap Pride will be the grand finale to a week’s worth of festivities, which include the popular Pride Party on Friday, July 14 beginning at 9 p.m. in the Fountain Room of the Bremerton Harborside. This year’s theme is “Black & White” with performances by Amora Dior Black and Sabrina White. Tickets are $10
