Spencer Pride has always been – and always will be – a 100% family-focused festival, with activities for individuals of all ages throughout the entire day.  The festival is pet-friendly and dogs with responsible owners are welcome. In fact, this will be the 4th year that our event will feature a Pet Pride Parade (presented by Elanco), with those furry members of our families participating to help us raise awareness to the need for the spaying and neutering of animals.

We will have a huge variety of items in our choose-your-own raffles. We also will have 50-50 drawings and free giveaways throughout the day.

Live, local entertainment will be on the Ivy Tech Stage at the historic Tivoli Theatre, in the Gathering place of the Spencer Pride commUnity center, & at Juniper Gallery throughout the day.   Keep checking our website for updates on our planned entertainment.  As always, our popular Drag Show will take place in the afternoon.
