Our Sponsors Help Make OBX Pride Possible

Dear Valued Outer Banks Community Partner,

We are pleased to inform you that the 13th Annual OBX Pridefest will be held Monday, September 9th through Sunday, September 15th, 2024. We have expanded and enhanced our celebration of inclusion and diversity in the OBX to span seven days. In addition to the main festival on Saturday, September 14th, which is expected to draw over 2,000 people, we will have a welcome event, two sunset cruises, a drag show, a five
course meal, two pub crawls, a headliner event, a drag brunch and a wrap party. We want to add additional events or highlight attractions/restaurants, etc. Monday through Wednesday as our scheduled events to date run Thursday through Sunday. 

OBX PrideFest week is the flagship fundraiser produced by OBX Pride, Inc., a 501(c)3 local non-profit organization. Established in 2011, OBX Pride, Inc. our mission is to eliminate prejudices and discrimination toward the LBGTQ+ community, to encourage businesses to be LBGTQ-friendly, and to increase tourism to the OBX while honoring the diverse community.

The OBX Pride Board members are committed to fulfilling our mission and we need your help as we continue planning a fun week of events! We want to send our visitors to your establishments. We want to advertise the businesses, promote your pride week specials and most importantly we want all our visitors to feel welcome in the Outer Banks. We have several different ways you can collaborate with us:
