What is the Asheville Pride Procession?
We are gathering to walk on behalf of a vision of hope: a vision of a community that is welcoming to all. We welcome businesses, churches, schools, organizations, groups, families, neighborhoods and individuals to join.
We are walking for a community where all are welcome to work, shop, and congregate as their authentic selves – regardless of their race, ethnicity, sex, disability, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion. We welcome all who share this vision to join.
Our theme is “Becoming Our Greatest Selves Together”.
When we make one another feel welcome and valued, we enlarge ourselves.
When we work together, we enrich our community.
This walk is intended to be inclusive of all communities, not just LGBTQ.
Line up along the Procession route and cheer on all those who are walking and
Becoming Our Greatest Selves Together.
The Procession will gather on Grove Street and then proceed along Patton Avenue up to Pack Square and then continue into the Park ending in front of the Festival Stage.
