Rainbow Festival gives Marietta Pride by day

Add this share

When Chi-Chi LaRue slayed the LGBT-OTP by night, we were there. So when all facets of the community turned out to give the gay Atlanta suburbs some love from in-town during their Pride fest, we just had to see how the fourth North Georgia Rainbow Festival did the daylight hours.

Our answer? With just as much energy and fun. Indoors and outdoors, vendor booths, a kid zone, food trucks and performances by more than 100 drag and music acts over a 12-hour period on Saturday did the trick.

This year’s smiling faces hosted by Marietta gay bar LeBuzz and the North Georgia Rainbow Festival committee benefited the Health Initiative, the group that connects LGBT Georgia with affordable health and wellness options.
