In case you missed it: Georgetown Pride was a blast!

Updated: Jul 1

Last weekend, Georgetown hosted its inaugural pride festival on a warm, overcast early summer Saturday. As one of the folks who helped plan Georgetown Pride, I may be biased in my review, however the general consensus was that it was a success, as well as a fun party!

Attendees gathered at Bloom Bistro in the afternoon for bagels, face painting, tunes from the back of Mosé Auto's tow truck and general good vibes. From there, a parade set off down Carleton through the neighborhood led by the Dykes on Bikes, with participating groups including a brass band from Honk Fest, 777 Strength & Conditioning and Springboard Woodworks. Several neighbors had their own gatherings and posted up along the route to cheer the parade on.

Businesses along Airport Way hosted events that continued the good vibes into the evening: Jules Maes Saloon, 9LB Hammer, Tinte Cellars, Star Brass Works Lounge, Seattle Tavern & Poll Room and Post Pike Bar & Cafe. Owners of Shotgun Ceremonies, who offered free weddings for the event, reported that they officiated five weddings that day! And folks who were curious what exactly a "Hot Dog Prom" was had their questions answered at Seattle Tavern (hint: think hot dog slice inside of a Jell-O shot).

Huge thanks to the volunteers and businesses who helped with time, money or space. We had a great celebration and are already looking forward to Georgetown Pride 2025!
