Local Entertainers: The Pride Festival Wants You!



Relatively ignored, for reasons we can't explain and should probably apologize for not letting you know sooner, The Utah Pride Festival is currently taking applications for, well, everything! --- Musicians, performers, vendors, parade entries, leadership volunteers and even nominations for the Pride Awards are all on the table right now. Last year if you recall the majority of the music was DJ's on stage with no bands, and a lack of overall performers throughout Washington Square. This year the fest has opened the application process up and are looking for some of Utah's best over all three days. Considering this is one of the biggest localized festivals of the year, it would be dumb not to give it a shot. On top of the usual call for participants, this year the festival is looking for artists as well! Adding a brand new “Art Zone” to the grounds to showcase local names. Click this link here to sign up as an entertainer of any stripe, click this link here for vendors, click on this link here to join up for the parade, click this other link here for artists looking to join the Art Zone, click on this link here to become a volunteer, and finally to nominate someone for either the Dr. Kristen Ries Community Service Award or the Pete Suazo Political Action Award, email your candidate to: nominations@utahpridecenter.org. The deadline for everything is April 1st!
