Blue Ridge Pride is excited to announce that 2020 Pride is back on, just virtually. Back in May, after careful consideration from our Board of Directors, we determined as a result of COVID-19, community health, and social distancing, that we would cancel our plans for the Blue Ridge Pride Festival in downtown Asheville. However, we are pleased to announce that on Saturday, September 26 at 7 p.m., we will be hosting a live virtual broadcast of a PRIDE “festival” on Blue Ridge Pride Center’s Facebook page (@blueridgepridecenter).
