What is Equality Fest?
From the Equality Fest website:
On Sunday, August 3, 2014 from 12:00pm – 8:00pm, The Equality Fest Alliance with more than a dozen partner offices and organizations, will hold their first Equality Fest; a day long, family friendly arts, culture and community festival in the City of York, located at Cherry Lane Park, York, PA. This event, being held to celebrate the inclusion of all York and Pennsylvania Citizens in all aspects of civic life, was inspired by the decision of the U.S. Federal District Court to allow marriages for those within the LGBT community. The event will be free and open to the public. The festival will feature two stages with music, dance, theater, poetry, spoken word and performance art as well as strolling performers, a fully interactive children’s area with games and activities, retail vendors, informational displays and a variety of food trucks.
The day will also include a group wedding officiated by York City Mayor, C. Kim Bracey, which will be open to all couples, regardless of sexual orientation and a vow renewal for those wishing to affirm or reaffirm their vows in the Equality Fest setting. The event will provide the opportunity to raise awareness of The City of York as a dynamic cultural destination and a progressive, people centered community that actively celebrates the full inclusion of ALL its beautifully diverse citizens in ALL aspects of civic life - regardless of race, age, gender, mental or physical ability, economic status or sexual orientation.
