The Capital Pride Celebration in Washington, D.C. begins today and runs through Sunday, June 9th, and Barefoot is proud to serve as a sponsor of this year’s landmark event. This edition of the celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, which is considered to be the beginning of the modern day LGBTQ+ rights movement.  

There are a wide variety of festivities planned for this year’s Pride celebration, including:
•    May 31 – Kickoff Party
•    June 6 – Rooftop Rally
•    June 7 – RIOT! Opening Party
•    June 8 – Pride Brunch
•    June 8 – Pride Parade
•    June 8 – Pride Block Party
•    June 9 – Pride Festival and more

Barefoot will be on hand for all the events. Officials are anticipating hundreds of thousands to be in attendance.
