Did you know that Pride costs over $206,000 to produce?
As you enter the festival, we will be asking for a $5 donation each day to help us cover these costs. Your purchase of a Dog Tag or Wristband covered this donation in advance.
Our pride patio is stocked with hours of entertainment and fun!
Get a chance to see Columbus from the sky with our 130 Foot Zipline as it soars above the park!
See how long you can last on the Mechanical Bull, or challenge a friend to a Gladiator Fight just like on TV! Put on your helmet, grab a jousting pole, and try not to get knocked off your pedestal!
Relax at our shaded patio tables and enjoy a live DJ and dance floor before you take a ride down the Barefoot Wine Wedding Cake Slide!
