Become a Sponsor


In 2022 Blue Ridge Pride updated its sponsorship model from a festival-based program to general sponsorships that includes expanded visibility to reflect our sponsor’s support for both the festival and our ever-expanding year-round programming.

A key component continues to be visibility during the Blue Ridge Pride Festival and Welcoming WNC Procession that we hold each year in downtown Asheville on the last Saturday of September.  An estimated 15,000 to 18,000 people gather for a day of education, advocacy, celebration, education and service (ACES). Welcoming businesses, health care providers, and faith organizations share space with community service organizations, advocacy groups, artists, and merchants. It is a model of a community growing together.  


Sponsors play a critical role in making this day happen.  We offer several sponsorship packages.
