Milwaukee Gay Arts Center, 703 S 2nd Street Milwaukee, WI 53204
In 2012 PrideFest Milwaukee will celebrate a milestone, as the festival turns 25. In celebrating this major event, the people of PrideFest Milwaukee invite you to join them for a stroll down a digital memory lane, with a fundraising event unlike any other.
"25 Years of Pride" is a digital multimedia event that will feature several large format High Definition screens presenting images of the people that have made up, and attended, PrideFest from year one to year 24. This event will give people a chance to see where PrideFest Milwaukee began, and how it has grown over the years.
"25 Years of Pride" also offers an interactive component allowing people to tag themselves, via Facebook, in any images they may appear in during the event. With several internet connected computer workstations, you will not only be able to tag yourself but others that may not be present, or may not be with the community any longer. These albums will remain a part of the PrideFest Milwaukee Facebook page permanently.
The event will be hosted at the Milwaukee Gay Arts Center and feature an open bar of wine presented by Barefoot Wines, and craft beers by Reckless Brewery. DJ Kelly of Milwaukee will be creating the sound scape for this unique event.
As an added bonus, if you purchase your tickets online in advance, you will receive a voucher towards one free single day admission to this year’s PrideFest celebration. This promises to be an event like no other, with a chance to connect yourself with the history of a incredibly dynamic festival and support its future expansion and growth.
Proceeds from this event, will benefit the 25th Annual PrideFest Celebration.
Ticket Price: $50 (includes admission, beer, wine and ticket [online purchase only] for the festival in June)
