Charlotte Pride expands lineup of events

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Pride Month is celebrated nationally in June when cities across the country promote equality and inclusion for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer community. However, for nearly 20 years, Charlotte Pride was celebrated in August until the pandemic forced organizers to cancel the 2020 parade and festival.

This year, organizers have announced the return of in-person events and an expanded lineup running from August through November.

The annual Pride Parade is now set to take over Tryon Street in uptown Oct. 24.

Other events that will be held during “Pride Season” include the weekend of service Aug. 21-22, a concert event Sept. 17, a pop-up festival Sept. 18 and an LGBTQ film festival Nov. 5-7.
