On Saturday, Wenatchee Pride will host its annual Pride festival at Memorial Park in West Wenatchee. The event will be a colorful one. The park will be packed with vendors, food trucks, vibrant music and a beer garden. The event is free to attend. It is set to begin at 11 a.m. and end at 9 p.m. 

The Pride festival was created to connect the north central Washington LGBTQ+ community and allies. Everyone is invited to come together and celebrate diversity.  

Kelsey Riggs, the president of Wenatchee Pride, said he is excited for the Pride festival and believes this will be a great way for people to connect. In the past, he said over 4,000 people attended. He expects the same amount, if not more, to attend this year. 

“I’m thrilled to celebrate this incredible event that honors diversity, inclusion and love. The Wenatchee Pride Festival is a time for our community to come together, embrace who we are and support one another,” Riggs said.
