In addition to the parade on Sunday morning, there is a Night Festival on Saturday, August 24 from 4:00-11:00 p.m. and a Day Festival on Sunday, August 25 from noon-6:00 p.m. Both festivals will be held at the Plaza de César Chávez Park, 1 Paseo de San Antonio in San Jose. No registration is needed to attend the festivals.
While most Pride celebrations took place in June, Silicon Valley Pride will take place this year in August. The Action Council has approved the use of the UUCPA banner at the parade, which will take place Sunday, August 25, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, beginning at Market and E. Julian St in San Jose and ending at Market and E. San Fernando St. The First Unitarian Church of San Jose will be marching in the parade and it would be great to have a contingent from UUCPA as well. If you are interested in participating this year, please visit the Action Council table on the patio to sign up so we can connect you to others who are interested in attending. If we have people interested in going, the Action Council will provide funding for the parade registration fee.
