WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Capital Pride festivities in the District of Columbia are wrapping up Sunday night with several events, including the annual festival.
The 17th annual festival, which takes place from noon to sunset Sunday on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 3rd and 7th streets, is D.C.’s largest annual one-day event with more than 150,000 visitors. It provides entertainment, music, food, drink, education, and celebration, including three stages and about 300 sponsor and vendor exhibits.
The festival is open to everyone and is free, but organizers say a donation is encouraged.
The entertainment at this year’s festival is headlined by Emeli Sandé, Icona Pop and Cher Lloyd on the Capitol Stage, and Eric Himan and the Soultre Singers on the Dupont Stage. After the entertainment winds down on the Capitol Stage at about 8 p.m., the festival is hosting a dance party until 9 p.m.
The music and dancing then will move to Cobalt on R Street for a Closing Party from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
