San Mateo County Pride 2022 Resource Booth Application Form

Dear Community Partner,

The San Mateo County (SMC) PRIDE Initiative is excited to welcome you to the 10th Annual San Mateo County LGBTQ+ Pride Celebration -Still Here, Still Proud! CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF PRIDE ON THE PENINSULA! This year, the celebration will be on Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at San Mateo Central Park.

The SMC PRIDE Initiative is composed of a passionate group of folks who were brought together to foster a welcoming environment for the LGBTQIA+ communities living and working in San Mateo County. It has been 11 years since the SMC PRIDE Initiative marched in the San Francisco Pride Parade; it was inspirational. This empowering experience was instrumental in the vision and planning for San Mateo County’s own commemoration 10 years ago. Of course, the SMC PRIDE Initiative couldn’t put together this event without partners and collaborators like San Mateo Parks & Recreation, the San Mateo County Pride Center, the San Mateo County LGBTQ+ Commission, San Mateo County Office of Diversity and Equity, multiple community partners and you!

 

We are actively seeking community groups and organizations to have resource tables at our event. We are also seeking small business owners to have a vendor booth at our event. The past two years, we persevered through the dreadful restraints of the COVID-19 pandemic and connected remotely for Pride. With safety precautions in place and community planning, we are now able to join “in-person” to connect with each other for a 10-year celebration of Pride on the Peninsula. Our virtual Pride celebrations have attracted 1000 viewers and previous in-person celebrations have welcomed over 800 community members. This is a great opportunity to both support the LGBTQIA+ community raise the public’s awareness of your organization’s mission and services; or promote and sell your items to an excited and fully-engaged crowd. Space is limited so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
