(SIOUX FALLS, SD), April 6, 2020 -- Due to the growing uncertainty around COVID-19, the Sioux Falls Pride Board of Directors and volunteer Committee announce the decision to postpone 2020 Sioux Falls Pride celebrations in June, including the Pride Festival and the Pride Parade.
The health and safety of all who celebrate Pride remains the organization's first priority.
“The decision was difficult to make, however, we feel with the current pandemic, it’s the right decision,” said Quinn Kathner, President of Sioux Falls Pride.
The Pride Festival is Sioux Falls Pride’s biggest fundraiser, helping support their efforts throughout the year.
“The health and safety of our community comes first. We will celebrate Pride with everyone when it’s time for everyone to be together again,” said Rachel Polan, Marketing Director of Sioux Falls Pride.
Sioux Falls Pride continues to monitor federal and state recommendations in hopes of moving forward with an alternative celebration date in 2020.
