Polk Pride Events 2021: Together We Rise

As many of you know, due to obvious circumstances, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Pride events.

Since this announcement was made last Spring, we as a committee have remained in constant conversation about being present in our communities and making a come back once circumstances allowed us to safely do so.

We’re incredibly excited to announce, Polk Pride 2021 will be held this Fall: September 25 – October 2!

Check-out a complete list of 2021 events, including dates, times, and additional details below.
