Drive-Through Parade Registration
Sonoma County Pride Celebration – June 5, 2021, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Graton Resort & Casino, Rohnert Park,
“BEYOND THE RAINBOW, Surviving, Reviving and Thriving”
Thank you for joining us for our first-ever drive-through Parade LGBTQI Pride Celebration event. Please read each of these pages carefully. To ensure a safe and enjoyable event experience for participants and spectators, the rules and regulations herein will be strictly enforced.
This year’s theme is “BEYOND THE RAINBOW, Surviving, Reviving and Thriving”. The pandemic dominated our lives for over a year, causing many in our community to feel isolated and alone. Our lives have changed forever in some good ways and some not so good. Finally, our community is able to come together once more. For those of us who have SURVIVED, the celebration will REVIVE our spirits and show our Unity and Strength, and set us up to THRIVE.
Drive-through parade participants are encouraged to design their Stationary Float (Display) to be as festive and creative as possible. We encourage you to incorporate our year theme into your design.
