The Northwoods Pride Festival is in its third year. The event started as a potluck lunch that was held in Arbor Vitae. Year 2 saw the addition of Northern Wisconsin’s first drag show, live musical acts, a resource fair, and more. In our third year, we look to bring you more of the same, plus some great new additions. Stay tuned!
One big change for this year is our venue. We are pleased that Nicolet College in Rhinelander is hosting! Thanks for the Nicolet College Rainbow Hodags for taking on this year’s event.
