Brown.[/caption] The second annual Burien Pride celebration will take place in Burien Town Square Park onÂ Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with FREE admission to the public. All ages are welcome. More than 2,000 attendees celebrated Burien Pride in its first year alone. The non-profit aims to meet and surpass that excitement in 2018 with new and returning musical acts, artisan crafts, all-ages activities, food vendors, special guests, family programming, and aÂ 21+ Burien Pride Beer Garden sponsored by local brewpub Elliott Bay Brewhouse. â€œThe support of the community is so vital at this juncture,â€ said committee member Debra George, a staple in Burien.Â â€œWe encourage community members, businesses, organizations, and individuals to get involved in Burien Pride however it fits them best – whether that be through active participation volunteering day-of, sponsoring, hosting a booth, or any other contribution.â€ â€œAs we grow as an organization in our second year, it’s important that we give back to the community and foster an affirming space where everyone is welcome,â€ said committee member Sarah Toce.Â â€œRegardless of where you’re from, we invite you to join us in celebrating Burien Pride 2018.â€ New this year: a portion of all proceeds from Burien Pride will benefit the local community by way of the organization’s newly-formed Burien Pride Scholarship Fund. A drag show will take place from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., followed by after-parties by nearby participating bars. More information to be disclosed as it becomes available. Don’t miss out on the fun this year as Burien Pride returns on Saturday, June 2, 2018!
