Viroqua Pride

VIROQUA, Wis. (WKBT) — The “second annual” Viroqua Pride Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Eckhart Park in downtown Viroqua.

The family-friendly festival is free and open to the public.

The inaugural Viroqua Pride Festival in August 2019 attracted more than 500 area residents, from babies to elders.

After a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Viroqua Pride Board is billing the event Saturday as the “second annual” fest.

As in 2019, the celebration will feature entertainment, education, food and merchandise vendors, a Blessings Booth including area clergy and fun activities for people of all ages.
