The 2nd annual LGBTQ Berkshire Pride Festival is happening Saturday, June 2 between 2:00 PM and 5:30 PM. This rain or shine event will take place at the First St. common in Pittsfield.

Just over 500 attended last year, and pride event coordinators expect close to 1000 people this year! It's just one of many events happening this weekend.

This family fun event is absolutely free and is open to the public. You can enjoy speakers, music, a drag show, pride march, vendors and food.

The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer) Berkshire Pride Festival is a joint effort by Berkshire Pride and Berkshire Stonewall Community Coalition.
