7th Annual Outer Banks Pridefest Coming To Manteo
For the seventh year, OBX Pride, Inc. welcomes the LGBTQ community to Outer Banks Pridefest during the weekend of September 22-24.
The three-day long celebration begins Friday afternoon September 22 and runs through Sunday September 24. The centerpiece event is the Outer Banks Pride Festival on Saturday afternoon. This year, the Festival moves to the downtown Manteo waterfront and is free and open to the public.
This year’s headliners are world-renowned drag comedienne Lady Bunny and legendary trans performer, Jennifer Warner. Lady Bunny will perform her one-woman cabaret on Saturday night. Jennifer Warner is the festival’s hostess and will emcee the new Miss Outer Banks Pride Talent Show and Sunday’s Drag Brunch.
Other events include a Sunset Booze Cruise sponsored by MJs Tavern in Norfolk, a concert by Hampton Roads performer Cliff Warner, the Pride and Joy Drag Show, and plenty of time for sun and fun at the beach.
“We’re thrilled that for the seventh year, the Outer Banks continues to embrace the LGBTQ community,” said David Miller, Outer Banks Pridefest organizer. “And with our move to the Manteo waterfront and the addition of the Miss Outer Banks Talent Show, we have some new surprises for everyone.”
