Local organizations are coming together to celebrate Bemidji Pride Support Network’s second annual pride event. Set for Saturday, August 27th at the Rail River Folk School, the event is expected to host close to 600 people throughout the afternoon and evening.
Area artists, entertainers, and business owners will be at the event. There will be 44 vendors, an outdoor activity area near Lake Irving for families from 1-5 p.m., and even educational booths for attendees. With all the events planned for the Bemidji Pride celebration, community members are helping with different parts of it.
