The ninth annual Out! Raleigh festival is an inclusive and action-packed event with family-friendly activities for all ages. Out! Raleigh is an important way to raise the necessary funds to support the LGBT Center of Raleigh and all of its 28+ programs. In 2016, more than 51,000 people poured into Raleigh’s City Plaza to celebrate the LGBT community with our allies, friends and families.
In the last eight years, Out! Raleigh has become a vital part of Raleigh’s downtown culture, promoting diversity awareness as well as a sense of inclusivity for the LGBT community and its allies both inside and outside of the Triangle. Each year has been more successful than the last and this year will be no exception.
This year's Out! Raleigh festival will include live entertainment such as DJ Pancakes, High Bushy Tails, Posh Hammer, Sampson, Alise King, Common Woman Chorus, She Returns From War and the Triangle Pride Band. For a full list of performers, click here.
