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 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.
