Grand Marshal Nominations Open Now!

2017 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshal Nomination Form

To nominate an individual or group to be a Grand Marshal in the 2017 Atlanta Pride Parade, please complete this form.

ALL NOMINATIONS ARE DUE BY APRIL 24, 2017.

You are welcome to submit multiple nominees, but each separate nomination requires a new form to be completed: only one group or individual is allowed per form.

Grand marshal selections are based upon the merits of the nominee and not the quantity of nomination forms submitted.

Nominees do not have to identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. We welcome heterosexual allies as nominees.

Nominees are not required to be political in nature.

Nominees of all gender identities and expressions are welcome.

Individual nominees must reside in Georgia. Organizational nominees must be based in Georgia. The Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) encourages the nomination of individuals or groups that have ties to our local and state communities.

While it is not required that you personally know the individual you are nominating, we encourage it. An inability to provide contact information about the nominee may make it difficult for APC to get in touch with the nominee if they are selected to serve.

APC DOES NOT ACCEPT NOMINATIONS OF INDIVIDUALS CURRENTLY CAMPAIGNING FOR POLITICAL OFFICE, AS THIS MAY GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF AN ENDORSEMENT.

If a group is nominated and selected as a Grand Marshal, the organization will receive four VIP/Sponsor Party tickets and four VIP Festival Passes and will have the ability to have two members ride in the APC-provided convertible in the Atlanta Pride Parade on October 15, 2017.

ATLANTA PRIDE ANNOUNCES 2016 ENTERTAINMENT LINE UP

Atlanta, Georgia. – The Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) announced the details today for their entertainment lineup during their 2016 Atlanta Pride Festival.

The Atlanta Pride Festival features 2 stages, the Bud Light Stage and the Coca-Cola Stage, that will be filled with a host of dynamic performers throughout the weekend! From hot new artists Jason Maek & Zaena to perennial favorites, the Michel Jons Band, both stages will be pumping all weekend! If that isn’t enough, they’ve got DJ’s, dance parties, the Mad Violinist and More!

The eclectic lineup includes red-hot newcomer, Atlantic Recording artist, Kiiara whose song “Gold” is soaring up the charts along with Swedish vocalist and Epic Recording artist, Zara Larsson, best known for hits, “Lush Life” and “Never Forget You.” Rounding out the weekend is legendary performer, Grammy-winning Jody Watley! The Pop/R&B music maker, songwriter, producer and dance pioneer, best known for such monster hits as “Looking for a New Love,” “I Want You,” and “Some Kind of Lover” will perform with disco-legends, Grammy-winning, Shalamar, together, they are sure to delight festivalgoers with such megahits as “The Second Time Around” and “Dancin’ in the Sheets.”

APC Executive Director, Jamie Fergerson, said of the schedule, “It is important to Atlanta Pride that we offer not only a stellar line up of diverse artists from many genres that is accessible to all members of our community. We believe that we have accomplished this again this year.”

She continued, “While many other large Pride celebrations have moved to ticketing portions of their festival, thanks to the support of Atlanta’s LGBT community and our sponsors alike, we can stay true to our commitment of keeping the festival and our entertainment free of charge.”

Fergerson added, “Of course we are also excited to continue the tradition of closing out the festival with the beloved Starlight Cabaret. After a weekend of great performances from artists locally and nationally recognized, there’s no better way to top that off than with our own community stepping up with talented and entertaining drag performances!”

The Bud Light Stage is located next to the pavilion by the soccer fields, and the Coca- Cola Stage is located at the top of the Meadow at 10th St. near the Charles Allen Gate, both in Piedmont Park.

A complete line up of both the Bud Light and the Coca-Cola Stages is included below. Please note this is subject to change without notice. For detailed show times, download
