Come to Hastings on June 3 and join the hundreds of people walking under the giant rainbow arch to gather in Highland Park, behind the Hastings Museum, for Hastings PRIDE 2023.
The festival and march celebrate the LGBTQ+ community in Nebraska. Now in its fourth formal year, Hastings PRIDE is growing at a breakneck pace, with the number of attendees and exhibitors increasing year over year.
The theme of this year’s festival is â€œRISE UP1â€ signifying the need for everyone to rise up against the forces discriminating against the Queer community. The first 500 attendees to register, will receive a free commemorative tie-dye T-shirt bearing the theme and the event’s sponsor logos.
Like most PRIDE celebrations, Hastings PRIDE stands on three â€œpillarsâ€: Â Visibility; Education & Advocacy; and Entertainment.
