Blue Ridge Pride: September 30th, 2017

Blue Ridge Pride in Asheville, North Carolina is all about attempting to garner people from all walks of life and create an inclusive community. This community should feel welcoming and promote equality for all individuals. We hold a variety of events during the week ranging from comedy shows to simple picnics in the park. Be sure not to miss the main festival which will be held at Pack Square Park with two different stages and a children’s area.

Highlights:

  • Eat ice cream and contribute to a good cause during the Ice Cream Social
  • Enjoy some refreshing beer and support the Aura Home for Women Veterans
  • Get a good number of laughs at the Comedy Night at the Magnetic
  • Spend some time watching the Birdcage with others at Pack Square Park
