Coronavirus COVID-19 Update 3.12.2020

Annapolis Pride cancels all events until at least April 10th effective immediately

Public health and safety is our number one priority.  Annapolis Pride is canceling all events until April 10th effective immediately.  Yesterday, the World Health Organization (WHO) characterizes COVID-19 as a pandemic.

Our best hope to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 is through mitigation efforts like social distancing to reduce the disease caseload and keep our healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed, referred to as Flattening the Coronavirus Curve.  We strongly urge you, our supporters, and community partners to take immediate measures to maintain public health and safety.

We hope to celebrate with everyone at the Annapolis Pride 2020 Parade & Festival on June 27th.  In the event that the Parade & Festival are canceled or postponed, registered groups and sponsors can have their monetary support applied to the rescheduled event or request a refund.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and keep you updated.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns, info@annapolispride.org.
