Pridefest March 13th & 14th

Dates Set for PRIDEFEST 2010

PRIDEFEST will be held on
Saturday and Sunday March 13 & 14 from Noon till 7pm.
This year’s event is planned to take place at Jaco Pastorius Park,
Dixie Highway & 40th Ct. in Oakland Park.

“We are excited about our move to this more intimate location, and partnership with Oakland Park Main Street,” stated PSF Chair Jacqui Charvet. “Moving the site will enable our ability to offer the PRIDE STIMULUS PACKAGE….Reduced parking and entrance fees for our attendees.

Our Stimulus package for you is $10.  ($5 ea to Enter & Park)  Because of our low cost, $50 and $100 bills will not be accepted for parking or entrance. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

“While we were happy at our old venue, they were inflexible working with us on expenses; even given the state of the economy and the fact that revenues collected are returned to the community as grants,” added Ms Charvet.

Besides being a responsible social citizen, this year, PSF is also going “green.”
Vendor registration and requests for ad space in the PRIDE GUIDE will be available on our website.   No more reproducing and mailing materials.

Pride South Florida is an all volunteer non-profit organization, which produces the annual PRIDEFEST, a week-long celebration and tribute to the LGBT community.  Proceeds from PRIDEFEST serve as the primary income producer for various grant programs and public benefit opportunities bestowed throughout the year.

Last year over $27,000 was returned to local charitable organizations supporting our community.
PSF has returned over $250,000 to the community in the past five years.
