Durham Pride is quickly approaching – and you are invited!

Local United Methodist churches – including CityWell – will be marching in the Durham Pride parade on September 24th. We’ll also be volunteering at the festival afterward. You’re invited to march with us, volunteer with us, or do both as we celebrate Durham’s LGBTQ+ community. Sign up links are below for walking in the parade and for volunteering in the festival.

  • Parade is from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
  • Festival is from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Click here to sign up to walk with CityWell in the Parade. Strong church showings at Pride are so meaningful to many LGBTQ+ people.

Click here to sign up to volunteer with CityWell at the Festival. Local UMC churches (Bethany, CityWell, Duke Memorial, Elizabeth Street + Emmaus Way, and Trinity) will have a booth at the Festival portion of Pride. We need volunteers to stand at the booth (handing out Pride buttons, chatting with people, etc.) as well as volunteers to walk the festival (handing out Pride buttons, chatting with people, etc.). Talking point suggestions will be provided.

If you’d rather volunteer in a more general way, Durham Pride always needs volunteers. Please consider offering your time and energy to the festival coordinators as you’re able: volunteer opportunities range from helping with vendor assistance, set up, clean up, entertainment, and more. Sign up on the Durham Pride website.
