Pride FAQs

When is Davis Pride?

Davis Pride 2018 will be held on Sunday, May 20.

Where is Davis Pride?

Davis Pride Run/Walk for Equality and free community festival will both be held at the Davis Central Park (401 C Street).

Is there a fee for Davis Pride events?

Run/Walk for Equality – There is an entry fee ranging from $32-40.

Community Festival – There is no entry fees for the public to access the general areas.  We do however charge for backstage access and a VIP experience.

Why does Davis Pride not charge entry fees?

The goal of the Davis Phoenix Coalition Board of Directors and the Davis Pride planning committee is to ensure that all members of the community, regardless of age and income level, have access to the celebration and resources that Davis Pride offers.

How does Davis Pride support the programs of DPC by producing a free event?

Funds collected through the Run/Walk for Equality, vendor booth sales, sponsorships, donations, beer and wine garden sales, and VIP opportunities helps us pay the bills, from the stages, performers, port-a-potties, sound, security guards, police officers and everything in between.

The pride committee is mindful to ensure that we provide a quality event on a strict budget to maximize our profits.  Those profits are used to create and sustain the education and advocacy programs of DPC throughout the year, as well as assist with the funding and development of a resource center, to support the LGBTQ+ and ally residents of the city of Davis and surrounding areas.

Is there an age limit to attend Davis Pride?

No – all members of the community that want to contribute to the positive day are welcome.

Are pets allowed at the event?

Yes – all pets are welcome.  We will have a pet zone for our furry and feather friends to enjoy the day.  City law does require that all dogs are on a leash at all times.

How do I get to the celebration and find parking once there?

Please visit our Directions and Parking section for complete information. (Updated information coming in October)

Do you recycle and compost at your event?

Davis Pride provides refuse collection bins for recycling, composting and trash at our event. Beginning with our 2018 events, all beverage cups, plates, utensils used at our event are compostable and/or recyclable. All collected refuse will be sorted post collection to reduce our ecological footprint. To help us keep the event as green as possible, please DO NOT litter, and put all refuse in collection bins.

How can I volunteer for Davis Pride?

Davis Pride would not be possible without the help of a small army who lend their time before and during our event. There are volunteer opportunities for people of almost all skills, backgrounds and abilities. Please Sign Up to become a volunteer.
