Join us for the first ever grassroots Pride Festival in Macomb County!

On October 15-17, 2021, downtown Mount Clemens will host the inaugural Macomb County Pride Festival, featuring a Street Fair on Macomb Place and live performances. With a goal to develop an annual event, Macomb County Pride will celebrate and empower the region’s LGBTQ+ community through this family- and pet-friendly Pride Festival, and by offering participatory opportunities to local groups and organizations to highlight their support and resources available to the LGBTQ+ community in Macomb County.

Free Parking in Downtown Mount Clemens. Friday after 6pm and all day Saturday & Sunday

VOLUNTEER SIGN UP:
Fall into PRIDE with Macomb County Pride

Thank you all for your interest in volunteering at the inaugural Macomb County Pride festival in downtown Mount Clemens!

We are in need of event volunteers for the Saturday, October 16 street fair festival. Although it turned out that we are unable to have a carnival midway on Main Street after all – an unfortunate result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – we do have a full line up for the day. We are approaching 80 total booth spaces between arts vendors, nonprofit resources, and sponsors, and still have plans for a full lineup of performances on our main stage, sponsored by Shango Hazel Park, a family fun area with games, art activities, and more, and with a new addition of DJ Emily Rogers performing at a mid-fair location.

Please review the available jobs and time slots in Sign Up Genius at the link below and click on the button to sign up. The main event time is 12:00 – 6:30 pm plus we also need help before and after the event in some of the positions. Most of the shifts are 2 hours long, so you will still have plenty of time to enjoy the event.

Sign Up to Volunteer

Please check in 15 minutes before your shift at the Macomb County Pride Table near the Fountain Stage on Macomb Place.

If we have more volunteers than slots, we can always use your help to be a joyful and welcoming attendee at the event (and bring your family and friends). Please feel free to stop by the MCP table to say hello and see if we have any last minute needs. The Pride Pub Crawl on October 15 and the Drag Queen Brunch on October 17 do not currently require volunteers, but certainly your attendance would be fabulous.

If you are unable to volunteer for a shift, please make sure to remove your name in Sign Up Genius before the event so that someone else can sign up.

Let’s make this event shine. Thank you!
