Celebrate LGBTQ Pride in Nashville



The Nashville Pride Festival returns to Bicentennial Park on Saturday, June 22nd, and Sunday, June 23rd. Nashville Pride is a two-day LGBTQI+ festival featuring top-rated entertainment on multiple stages, a Kids and Family Area, a Youth Area, Community Art Installations, and over 225 vendors featuring local not-for-profits, artists, and businesses. This event is the largest LGBTQ+ event in Tennessee, and attendees ages 10 and under do not require a ticket to attend. The weekend of festivities will begin on Saturday, June 22, with the annual pride parade.

 

On the business side, Jackalope Brewing Company has created an event called 'Work For Your Beer' beginning on June 1 during Pride Month. For the month of June, Jackalope is partnering with Just Us, a branch of the Oasis Center: Just Us is a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ+) youth achieve their full potential. A portion of the ticket sales, as well as a portion of beer sales from Jackalope Brewing in the month of June, will be donated to Just Us. Work For Your Beer is a great opportunity to enjoy a HIIT workout while also supporting a good cause. There is currently one class scheduled, but if it sells out, they may add more. Jackalope will also be hosting a Pride run in partnership with Hoka, Cumberland Transit, and Just Us on June 26th at 5 pm.

 

On Saturday, June 1, Nashville Soccer Club, the city’s Major League Soccer team, will kick off Pride Month and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with Pride Night against the New England Revolution at GEODIS Park.

 

D'Andrews Bakery & Café in downtown Nashville, recently named a 2024 James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards semifinalist, is a must-visit for anyone in Nashville. Native Nashvillian, Executive Chef and Owner David Andrews offers customers everything from delicious pastries to sandwiches on freshly baked bread. Everything in the store is made in-house and nothing pre-made is shipped in. D’Andrews seasons and roasts the meats for the sandwiches, while also making the mayo, dijonnaise and pepper jelly toppings. D’Andrews also makes the dressings for the salads, the jams for the pop tarts and macarons, and the syrups for the coffee.
