On behalf of the organizing committee for Hill City Pride, please accept our thanks for your support of this historic event in the life of Lynchburg.
Hill City Pride started out as, what some people thought, a crazy dream during an exploratory meeting in August of 2018. We hit a few bumps along the way, as any new endeavor does, but we never lost sight of the dream and it all came to beautiful fruition this past Saturday. We estimated that 1600 people attended the festival, and though it may sound trite, the feeling of love and joy was everywhere.
It is hard to underestimate the impact on the lives of each person who walked through the gate. Many believed they would never see a day in Lynchburg when they could attend an open festival which celebrated Diversity in Community & Community in Diversity.
