Mid-South Pride Parade and Festival This Weekend

Posted By on Thu, Oct 4, 2012 at 3:08 PM

Mid-South Pride will hold its annual parade and festival on Beale Street for the second year, a change from years and years of holding the event in the Cooper-Young neighborhood.

The parade, which will be grand marshaled by Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center director Will Batts and local Tennessee Equality Project chairman Jonathan Cole, kicks off at 2 p.m.

The parade will end at Robert R. Church Park, where the pride festival will be underway. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and features Latin roots artist The Glo, singer-songwriter Jeremiah Clark, folk soul artist Summer Osborne, teen pop punk band The Hot Pink Paper Clips, and acoustic folk rockers Sibella.

After the pride festivities are over, Mid-South Pride is sponsoring a Pride Crawl after-party. The crawl begins at the Hard Rock Cafe from 6 to 7 p.m. and then moves to Jack Magoo's at 7:30 p.m., Dru's Place at 9 p.m., the Pumping Station at 10:30 p.m., Crossroads at midnight, and Spectrum at 1:30 a.m.
