Quad City Pride – June 4, 2011

By: Ariana Castellanos

Quad-City Pride Fest marks its 4th year this year, and like most 4-year-olds, it is larger than life.

The festival is set for June 4 from noon through midnight in downtown Davenport, Iowa at the Second and Warren intersection.

$5 gets you in to see Roller Darby exhibitions, visit vendor booths, and make use of the picnic area with your kiddos and pets. Performers will hit the stage just about every hour, with a colorful drag show to wrap up the night. This is your time to celebrate everyone and be “Out and Proud.”

We have your schedule for the main stage, and suggestions for post-pride debauchery.

We want to celebrate with you!
Send us your Gay Pride photos. This year you can also upload videos from your phone!

Share your Pride with everyone in 2011! And don’t forget to check out our Gay Pride Gallery.
