36th Annual San Jose Pride Festival

Info on the San Jose's annual pride event this weekend at Discovery Meadow:

August 20th and 21st will be the 36th annual Pride Festival in San Jose. It is the largest South Bay event to celebrate the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Allies community. There will be food, vendors, business and non-profit booths surrounding two stages. Martha Wash, Luciana, Lady Bunny, Sherry Vine and the Cheeseballs will headline the entertainment with local acts and DJs filling out the bill.
Saturday is family day and features the Women's Stage, with Free Admission. There will be children's activities in conjunction with the Children's Discovery Museum as well as a rock wall and bounce house.
Sunday is the climax with the headliners and thousands more folks in attendance. Admission is $15 at the gate or $10 if purchased on Saturday or at the Billy DeFrank in advance. Tickets may also be purchased online. Annual religious service will precede the festival at 10 AM Sunday.
We will be working toward Zero Waste Certification this year in conjunction with San Jose Green. Composting and dividing food waste will be featured for vendors and guests.
