Portland Pride Festival

Saturday June 13, 2015
For the second year of many to come, a bunch of Northwest authors of GLBTQ fiction and romance are coming together this weekend under the riverfront canopies at the Portland Pride Festival! Can't wait to see everyone, experience the love of the awesome crowds and, of course, hear our headliner The Original Weather Girl, Martha Wash. It's raining men...hallelujah! Our hostess with the mostest, Anne Tenino, who is the superpower pulling us all out from behind our computer screens into the bright of day, set us up with adjoining booths this year so we can better accommodate the crowds we had come by last year! Many of last year's authors are back--me, Anne, Ethan Stone, Daisy Harris, David Holly, Amelia Gormley and LC Chase (who is bringing our mascot--Cowboy James). In addition to our veterans, we have some new faces joining us to better represent the full spectrum, including Jove Belle, Karen Baker and D. Jordan Redhawk. The turnout should be great, but it's organized and spread out nicely along the Tom McCall Waterfront between Pine and Morrison. We'll be in C11-12 near the north end Pine Street entrance. Our local NW authors are bringing tons of free swag as well as books for sale, and we can accept cash, Paypal and Square credit card payments. Most of all, though, we can't wait to talk to Portland's book lovers, so stop by between 12-6 both Saturday and Sunday. Look for Cowboy James!! See you there, and HAPPY PRIDE!! HOW TO GET TO THE FESTIVAL: The festival is held at Tom McCall Waterfront Park along Naito Parkway in Downtown Portland between SW Pine Street and The Morrison Bridge. 2015 DATES & HOURS OF OPERATION: – Saturday, June 13th, 2015 from Noon until 6pm – Sunday, June 14th, 2015 from Noon until 6pm ADMISSION COST: $7 Donation – purchase VIP pass or use exact change for faster entry.
