The parade route starts at Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue at 11 am; ends at Allen Street.
Artist Adam Weekley recognized a need for content for the youngest Buffalo Pride festivalgoers and LGBTQIA+ youth. He dreamed up Camp Everything, a mobile art installation, and performance, drawing on nostalgic memories of 1980s summer camps. The vibrant float and its legion of happy campers will take a hike in the Pride Parade and Festival Sunday, June 4, at 11 am. The route starts at Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue; ends at Allen Street. Don't miss the special new characters making their debut at this year's parade!
Then head to the Festival at Canalside for camp crafts with the Burchfield Penney education team from 12:00 to 4:00 pm! Find us with our friends from Explore and More in the Pride Jr. tent!
Spearheaded by the Burchfield Penney, in collaboration with Torn Space Theater Company, and with generous financial support from the Cullen Foundation, the Camp Everything project will span three years, appearing at various cultural events. Torn Space cast the performers and will provide stage direction, sound design, costume assistance, and choreography. Weekley also engaged several local artists, including Mallory Mordaunt and Esther Niesen, and New York-based maker Randy Carfagno Productions, to help bring the installation to life.
