Save the Date: NC Pride at Night is September 28, 2019

Come one, love all! Join NC Pride at Night at its 2nd Annual NC Pride Festival in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, September 28, 2019, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The nonprofit NC Pride at Night launched a new LGBTQ pride festival in Raleigh last year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the city’s first pride celebration held in 1988. The inaugural event, which featured North Carolina-based LGBTQ rights activist Mandy Carter and pop singer and American Idol finalist, David Hernandez, attracted over 5,000 people.

The festival begins at the intersection of Hargett and Harrington streets near Legends Nightclub (300 West Hargett St.) More detailed announcements of events, vendors and performers will be made throughout the next three months.

NC Pride at Night is seeking volunteers, sponsors and entertainers for the 2019 festival. For more information, go to or follow us on social media. Twitter: @ncprideatnight; Instagram: @ncprideatnight; Facebook:

Donations collected during the event will support an LGBT nonprofit within North Carolina. NC Pride at Night recently earned a 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information.

NC Pride at Night is committed to uniting the community in strength and numbers to march forward and spread positivity, love, and inclusion for all. Join us on our #PrideforAllNC journey as we count down to this year’s event!
