Wisconsin Capitol Pride 2013
You Are Invited to Celebrate Pride, Equality & Diversity at the 2013 "Throw Back to The Magic" Pride Picnic Fundraiser Sunday, August 18th 1-6PM at Brittingham Park.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Parade has been cancelled for this year. However, we are hosting a Picnic at Brittingham Park in its place. Instead of cancelling everything altogether, we still wanted to offer the community a place to come together and gather as friends and allies to celebrate Pride weekend.
Everyone who was planning to march and participate in the parade is invited to attend the picnic. Gather your friends or bring your group or organization and picnic in the park with us.
Basic Event Overview:
This will be reminiscent of the "Old Picnic Days". We will not be selling alcohol however..... Attendees will be able to bring their cooler with Beer or Wine and their own food, pull up some lawn space and enjoy the afternoon. There will be a small stage with music and entertainment, local bands and acts are invited to sign up to perform and play for free as a donation of support to the community.
Kraft will be one of the event sponsors. There will be a children and family area with games, The Minnie Wiener Mobile will be making an appearance from 2-4 as well! We are also offering businesses and organizations an opportunity to have an information table/booth at the event. Forms/applications will be available on our website this week.
Event Fundraiser Goal:
It is our goal to raise money for a pride parade and other activities for next year. We will be asking each group that would have marched or submitted an entry into the parade to please DONATE your parade entry fee to Wisconsin Capitol Pride this year. Everyone from the community is invited to come to the park with or without a group and share in the fun for the day and celebrate pride. All donations will help us cover our costs for this picnic event and raise money for next year's Pride events.
We will also be asking every person in attendance to the picnic to give us your support and donate $5 to help us toward our fundraising goal.
More information and details will be announced this week.
