Planning is now underway for the 19th annual SLO Pride Festival. As this process progresses, we will make more details available. For now, reserve Sunday, July 12, 2015 for Pride in the Plaza.
A note to potential vendors for Pride in the Plaza: If you were a vendor last year, you will receive an application in the mail around the beginning of April. The application will also be available on our website and at the GALA Center at that time.
