2023 Kitsap Pride Poster & More

We are so excited to bring you the 2023 Kitsap Pride event at Gordon Fields (part of the Kitsap County Fairgrounds) in Bremerton, WA on Saturday, July 22 from 2 PM to 9 PM.

We have a great lineup on our Pride Stage. Kicking it off with the Purple Passion Swing Band, Local singer-songwriter ILA, 9 local drag Kings & Queens, DJ Woodrow Low (presented by C89.5fm), the BeautyBoiz, and wrapping up with CarLarans.

This year we wanted to honor the legacy of our neighbor and friend the late Patrick Haggerty. Lavender Country, led by singer and songwriter Patrick Haggerty, released what it widely considered the first openly gay country album in 1973. So join us for a Lavender Hoedown.

We have a great T-shirt and some stickers with our Y’all Means All logo. Plus, we will have some of last year’s T’s that didn’t make it before the festival.

We have our 21+ (w/ID) bar sponsored by Tito’s Vodka and Silver City Brewery. We will have Frozen Tito Ritas and Frosé along with cocktails and beer (including the Silver City Nice Day IPA Pride Edition can.

On July 16, 2016, we will celebrate 20 years of Pride in Kitsap County! This year’s international theme is “Solidarity Through Pride” and, clearly, we have a lot to celebrate! It is the goal of the Kitsap Pride Network (KPN) to make this year’s festivities bigger and better than ever. To do this, though, we need YOUR help!
With planning and strategy for our 20th Pride celebration already underway, we wanted to reach out and encourage you to become involved ASAP. We need people who will voice their ideas during this all-important planning stage and then continue on to help manage and coordinate activities to turn our collective vision into reality.
While we began meeting last fall, it’s not too late to get involved! We are meeting regularly. The location is usually our office or Olympic College, but we will be posting that information along with a meeting reminder a few days before on our Facebook group page. Please respond in a comment below or sign up on our Facebook page to let us know if you’ll be participating. We would encourage you to bring along any friends who might be interested in volunteering.
In addition to seeking more volunteer involvement, KPN is seeking candidates to expand its Board to ensure it represents the diversity of our community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to celebrating and supporting the LGBTQIA community in Kitsap County. Being a member of our Board requires a dedication to our group’s mission as well as the ability to attend meetings and actively work towards executing our goals.
We also want to hear if there’s something that can be done to make it easier for you to be more active in KPN or Pride volunteer activities. The group open to any suggestions; we really want to make these opportunities as inclusive as possible.
Thank you for your time and support of KPN and Pride in Kitsap County. Because of people like you, we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary. This is a momentous achievement during a very exciting time in our community’s history.
Kitsap Pride is YOUR Pride…and with your help we can set the stage for another 20 years!
