Ann Arbor Pride and Family Picnic

Ann Arbor Pride
Ann Arbor Pride (formerly OUTFest), an annual pride celebration hosted by Jim Toy Community Center, returns to Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown District with an array of activities for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and allied communities of Washtenaw County area. Weekend events are open to all attendees!

Every year we try to find events that welcome and celebrate our two-mom family.  One of our favorite events is Ann Arbor Pride.  Its a three day event, with most of the family friendly activities happening during the day on Saturday and Sunday.   My kids love the bounce house, face painting, arts and crafts, story-time with drag queens and the family friendly drag show.

The events on Saturday take place in Braun Court in Kerrytown and the Family Pride Picnic on Sunday is in Wheeler Park.

(Wheeler Park is a 1.93-acre neighbor park located between 4th and 5th and Depot. For its small size, it is packed with activities. The park contains a playground, restroom building with a water fountain, a walking/running track, basketball court, plaza with benches, picnic shelter with picnic tables and grills, an open field area, and an asphalt walk connection to all of the activities. There is parking available on the street.)

During the picnic there will be a Bounce Castle, bratwursts provided by the Wurst Bar, games, food, face painting, and so much more.  It’s a fun time for all!

If you see me or my family there this year, be sure to say hi!
