Mid-South Pride Scheduled for October

Posted By on Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 1:01 PM

In case you were wondering why Memphis didn't have a gay pride celebration during Pride Month (June), you should know that annual event was moved to October.

This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, October 15th, and for the first time, the parade will be held downtown on Beale Street at 2 p.m. The festival will be at nearby Robert Church Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In the recent past, the parade was held in Midtown's Cooper-Young neighborhood.

For years before 2010, Mid-South Pride's festival and parade was held in mid-June, when most major cities host their pride celebrations. But last year, local organizers moved the event to avoid June's heat and humidity.
