ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Annapolis Pride Parade and Festival scheduled for October 30 has been postponed due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases.

A new date for the event has been scheduled for June 4, 2022.

“We were hopeful that we could come together in person to celebrate in October, but with the resurgence of the COVID pandemic and stalling vaccination rates, in combination with the fact that children under 12 cannot be vaccinated at this time, the risk to the community is just too high,” said Annapolis Pride Founder and Board chair Jeremy Browning.

Registration for those who were scheduled to participate in the parade and festival will be rolled over to the new date unless a refund is requested.

All participants and volunteers should be contacted in the coming weeks.
