Y’all means all in the ATL!
Just like the majority of major public events, many hardships have been faced head on over the past two years. With rescheduling and cancellations continuously providing false hope, it finally looks like Atlanta Pride is back on track, ready to serve us one of the best Pride celebrations in the South.
They recently announced on their social that Atlanta Pride will returning this year, on Friday, October 7th until Sunday, October 9th.
They said, “To make up for lost time, we’re going ALL IN this year. Mark your calendars now for October 7-9, 2022 back at Piedmont Park. You know the drill. Bring your friends, lovers, and good energy to help us celebrate Atlanta Pride!”
The Pride Festival was scheduled to take place last year, but was cancelled last minute. Todrick Hall and Big Freedia were supposed to be headlining the event.
They continue, ” It’s been 3 years since we last celebrated in person together as we’ve grappled with this ongoing pandemic and made tough decisions to prioritize safety. We’re beyond grateful to be a part of such an understanding and caring community.”
It’s the largest Pride event in the United States South East Region, with an average of over 300,000 individual attendees over the weekend. There’s a lot that goes on during those two days (and the days leading into it)! So keep your eyes peeled, y’all!
