Vendor registration for Kitsap Pride 2023 is now open. This year’s festival will be held at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 22rd. We plan for a similar layout as last year with additional room for more vendors and more food vendors. We are planning for 5,000 visitors throughout the day this year.
Vendor Information – Click here for more information about becoming a vendor at Kitsap Pride. We have room for food vendors, businesses, non-profits (including clubs), and artisans. This is a great way to reach the LGBTQ+ community in Kitsap County.
Sponsor Kitsap Pride – Kitsap Pride is a free festival largely because of the generous support of our sponsors! We offer sponsorships starting at $500 as part of the vendor application or click here to find out more about sponsoring Kitsap Pride at whatever level is appropriate for you.
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!
