Outfest

2–10pm Saturday, June 2, 2018

This brand-new event is all street-festival fun, and brings even more Pride to the streets of Columbia!

Outfest Columbia is a new adventure for South Carolina Pride Movement, focusing on the LGBT community of Columbia, SC, showcasing our local talent, vendors, and businesses.

As our Pride festival grows year after year to a now two-day event in the fall, we are bringing a more “local” festival to downtown Columbia to kick-off Official National Pride Month, beginning June 1, 2018— this time, in the Vista on the 1100 block of Park Street between Gervais and Senate!

We will feature headlining entertainment on the Smirnoff #SCLoveWins Main Stage, and will present our all new Miss Outfest Pageant for female impersonators.

Headlining this event this year will be Steve Grand, plus Robin Adell, along with several stars of our Columbia area community—including Jesse Lyons, Miss Outfest Emeritus Paris Lefaris, Carla CoxVictoria Lefaris, Leslie Lain, Anaya DeVore and Veronica La Blank! Plus music by DJ Trevor D!

We will feature an afterparty called AfterGlo at The Capital Club that is sure to be an exciting event! Learn more!

We hope this will become a recurring staple for our City of Columbia for years to come with high growing potential for the betterment and awareness of the LGBT Community.

Stay tuned for more information! All plans subject to change!
