Rockville Pride

CANCELLATION advisory     

The 2020 Rockville Pride Celebration has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency.

For the past three years, the Human Rights Commission (HRC) has hosted Rockville Pride, an annual festival that celebrates Rockville’s LGBTQ+ community. This free celebration features live intergenerational performances, educational booths, dialogue, crafts, face painting, airbrush tattooing, food trucks, a moon bounce, and more. As part of the festival, the HRC raises funds for its local LGBTQ+ charity of choice. This past year, the HRC donated $1,000 to Rainbow Youth Alliance, an organization dedicated to providing a safe place for rainbow teens to ask questions, find mutual support, and learn information pertinent to their lives. This year, the HRC plans to donate funds to Maryland Coalition for Transgender Equality.
