The Conejo Valley Pride Festival will be located at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks, CA. It is set to take place on September 28th, 2019. The annual event kicks off at 10 AM to 5 PM and supports LBGTQ+ individuals and families of all sizes. It's packed full of inclusive excitement and entertainment every minute. If you're planning on attending the event, you've got some planning to do if you're coming from out of town. This guide should help plan some details of your trip so you can enjoy it to its fullest.
This year's theme is Community Pride. It's all about inclusivity and making everyone feel appreciated and welcomed. Now more than ever, this is an important message to share with the community at this year's event. The Conejo Valley Pride event is presented by the Conejo Valley Pride Committee in association with Diversity Collective Ventura County, an important organizer of Ventura County Pride. In 2018, DCVC helped local Conejo Valley organizers stage an inaugural east-county festival at the Civic Arts Plaza, raising more than $30,000 in sponsorships and ticket sales. This year’s festival is looking to be even bigger and better, so you’ll want to get your tickets today and show your support.
In addition to music and fun festival food, there are also vendors galore to shop and learn from. You'll have a great time taking in all the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feels of the experience. If it's the first time you're attending the Conejo Valley Pride event, it most certainly won't be your last. You'll enjoy it so much that you want to make it a yearly ritual to attend it.
