COVID 19 Policy 

As we approach the Kentuckiana Pride Festival (October 8-9, 2021), any updates regarding COVID-19 will be posted on this page and on social media.

Festival Policy 

All attendees entering the festival are required to present either:

Proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination


Proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a medical facility taken within 72 hours (3 days) prior to October 8th

Attendees are encouraged to wear a mask to ensure everyone’s safety.

To reduce contact we recommend purchasing all tickets in advance.

Parade Policy

We encourage participants to wear a mask.

All CDC, State of Kentucky, and City of Louisville guidelines will be followed, and we are working to ensure this event meets or exceeds all recommended standards. Failure to follow requests of staff members could result in ejection from the event.

We ask that you not attend if any of the following is true for you or anyone in your party:

  • Within 14 days before attending the festival you have tested positive, or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for, COVID-19;
  • Within 72 hours prior to attending the festival, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., a fever of 100.4F or higher, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking muscle pain/achiness, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, nasal congestion, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention);
  • Within 14 days prior to attending the festival, you have traveled to any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19.

Additional Information

Masks will be available for free at the entry gates, information tent, and first aid tents.  We will have increased hand sanitizer stations on site, and our cleaning crews will do frequent cleanings in high touch areas.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present.  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending the Kentuckiana Pride Festival and Parade, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
