STEVENS POINT –  As several as 3,000 persons celebrated aspect of LGBTQ Delight Month in Stevens Stage past year — and organizers think they could exceed that attendance this yr. 

Place Pride will return June 10-11 in downtown Stevens Position and Pfiffner Pioneer Park, increasing to contain a pub crawl the Friday right before the Saturday festival, reported Ryan Goszkowicz, occasion director for Position Delight. 

“We’re seeking to develop the number of days of events just about every calendar year,” Goszkowicz said. 

Issue Pride will go into the festival with nearly $14,000 to shell out on the function, doubling what organizers had available past 12 months, he mentioned. The added cash suggests they will have a lot more giveaways and more wide variety in entertainment – such as a bounce household for little ones. 

Final year aided cement the festival in people’s minds because Satisfaction activities in Madison and Milwaukee were being canceled thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, Goszkowicz said. Brenna Davis joined Place Satisfaction this year as volunteer coordinator immediately after viewing the turnout very last yr.
