In 2017, we had a record number of vendors participate in our festival. Businesses, non-profits, and elected officials all set-up their displays, giving themselves an opportunity to connect with a record-size crowd.

You can bring your own tent, table, and chairs, or you can reserve a space under the Pride tents that we make available for the vendors who want it.

A-Prom is a prom event for everyone – age 13-19 – that will take place on Friday, June 1, 2018 from 7-11pm at the Albany Capital Center.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door, however we prefer you sign-up ahead of the event so we have a ballpark headcount for catering purposes.

DJ Fantastic will be spinning the dope sounds.  Pizza and beverages will be provided by the Pride Center. As if THAT weren’t already enough to get you there, here’s something that  might seal the deal – the Albany Cap Center has a  rainbow-lighted ceiling!
