PrideFest is the largest and most public Pride event that OutCenter Southwest Michigan has ever organized.

Last year, in 2021, we successfully moved in this direction by hosting our first free, public event in an open plot of land not far from the center. This year we are upping the ante in both scale and scope. For starters, we have been approved to utilize Dwight P. Mitchell City Center Park right on Benton Harbor’s Main Street. In this much larger space we are creating a festival atmosphere much like that of Niles’ Apple Fest and Coloma’s Peach Fest. The event will feature food trucks, music, sponsors, local artisans, and family activities to create that same Southwest Michigan festival energy. In addition to the family, all ages, event we are also going to have an adults only After Party at The Livery with live entertainment. We want the day to be fun, light, and unapologetically queer.

Become a sponsor  of this event today!

a whole lotta pride benefitting the OutCenter...
