Famously Hot SC Pride, the largest and longest-running Pride event in South Carolina, has just closed its 28th year with record-blasting numbers!
This year, we implemented a new NIGHT TIME PARADE with a street dance featuring Mimi Imfurst as DJ and Lil’ Kim in a free stage concert on Friday to kick off our Pride Weekend, allowing for a bigger celebration of LGBT in SC!
And it has paid off. 2017’s celebration marked SC Pride’s biggest year yet. Official estimates from City of Columbia bring our attendance at this year’s parade and festival to a Famously Proud 75,000! We had record attendance, we had record vendors, we had record parade participants—we broke every record in our books! And we couldn’t do it without you!
We are so thankful to South Carolina, Richland County, City of Columbia, our sponsors, our volunteers, our parade participants, our entertainers, our speakers, our grand marshals, our vendors, and, of course, to our friends and family who came out to be a part of one of the largest festivals in the city and the largest Pride event in the state.
