2019 Aurora Pride Festival

Save the dates: June 7-9, 2019  |  Be a part of history… again!

This past June, Indivisible Aurora held the first ever Pride Parade in the Chicago suburbs. The response was rousing. The reviews were incredible. We saw thousands of participants and spectators turn Aurora into a boisterous and loving sea of rainbow colors. It was a brilliant family-friendly event.

In 2019 we are building on the loving energy of the 2018 parade. Our intention is to expand the celebration to a three day Pride Festival. The mission of the festival is "Promoting the inclusion and support of LGBTQ+ Aurorans through art, entertainment and conversation."

Tentative Schedule
 Friday
* Kickoff - Dinner, Auction and Keynote

Saturday
* 5k Rainbow Run/1m walk
* Out and About Downtown
* Out and About Marketplace

Sunday
* Indivisible Aurora Pride Parade
* After Event

It’s ambitious! We know. And in order to do it well we need your support again. You powered the 2018 event. We will depend on the you to power the 2019 event as well. Any amount you can give will help. 

Activities will be family friendly. And we invite all members of the LGBTQ+ community, their loved ones and their allies to attend. There will be art, speakers, poetry, music, vendors, running and… oh yes… a larger parade. It will be a fantastic weekend!
