The Bethel CT Pride LGBTQ+ Parade and Celebration provides the opportunity to come together in celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and equality.
Bethel CT Pride is the first and only LGBTQ+ pride parade in Northwestern Connecticut, a tradition we look forward to continuing for years to come.
In 2017, our inaugural event brought over 500 attendees to the downtown Bethel area, a number we were pleased to match at the 2018 celebration! Bethel businesses benefit from the surge in customers and the opportunity to serve the community, fostering a sense of camaraderie with local patrons and establishing relationships with new clientele. In addition, our Bethel CT Pride social media channels allow us to connect with community members year-round. Our primary channel, @BethelCTPride on Facebook, carries a following of 540+ and continues to grow. Our total organic reach of our 2018 event hit 35.4K! We also have a following on Instagram, Twitter, and Telegram that allows us to further widen our reach.
By becoming a sponsor, your contribution will not only help cover costs related to the Bethel CT Pride LGBTQ+ Parade and Celebration, but also allow Bethel CT Pride to grow the event for years to come.
If you would prefer to make an in-kind donation, please provide details on the sponsorship form and a volunteer will be in touch.
We are also interested in partnering with businesses that wish to collaborate with day-of promotions to draw visitors to Bethel and the Bethel CT Pride Parade in the spirit of community and love.
Please note: If you choose to make a monetary gift, gour payment will be handled by our fiscal sponsor, Triangle Community Center (TCC), a 501c3 organization based in Norwalk, CT. TCC provides financial management and administrative support for all contributions to Bethel CT Pride.
