It is perhaps the perfect blend of everything a person could ever want to enjoy at an outdoor summer event. The festival on Saturday has everything from art to beer to canoe rides, and is spread out through Loring Park. The Pride Parade on Sunday is a collection of the brightest, happiest, most colorful expressions of community you’ll ever see.

This year, Pride Presents! is hosting a special comedy show on the Thursday before Pride Weekend. Tig Notaro headlines at the State Theatre that night with special guest Fortune Feimster. Notaro, one of Rolling Stone’s 50 best stand-up comics of all time, produces and stars in the Amazon series One Mississippi. You might recognize Feimster from Chelsea Lately or The Mindy Project. This dynamic duo is the perfect way to enjoy a Thursday and kick off Pride Weekend !

You can get tickets for $30 – $79 through the State Theatre Box Office. The show starts at 8 pm, which means the Park and Shop ramps a couple blocks away only cost $6 to park. The discount
