NWA Pride

Last year's Pride Parade in downtown Fayetteville drew an estimated 20,000 people. This year, Northwest Arkansas Pride will celebrate the 16th annual event virtually with a series of events from June 26 through 27 in conjunction with International Global Pride.

The documentary In Her Words: 20th Century Lesbian Fiction explores how key authors and their works impacted the genre and society. A screening of the work-in-progress will be held June 14 at 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville.

The inaugural Pride Ride was held in Bentonville Sunday ahead of a Beer & Hymns concert at 8th Street Market to raise money for Pride at NWACC. Ride organizers say they would like to see more Pride events in Bentonville and other Northwest Arkansas cities in conjunction with Pride Weekend festivities held in Fayetteville.

Northwest Arkansas Pride 2019 will feature the 15th annual Pride Parade in downtown Fayetteville. Before and after the pride, though, will be events featuring art, drag shows, music and more designed for participation from the entire community.  

The Pride Parade in Fayetteville is the largest in the state according to organizers. This year's parade is followed by a Saturday festival and more in downtown Fayetteville.
