3rd Annual Bolingbrook Pride Picnic and Puppies

Join us for a fun family picnic and dog rescue benefit (complete with puppy cuddles), music, food, games, and more! Bolingbrook PRIDE aims to support LGBTQ acceptance through family-friendly community activities, and we’d love to have you celebrate with us! All are welcome; kindness is mandatory; bring your friendly and well-behaved doggos on a leash as well!

We’ve extended our time this year upon multiple requests to include those who’d like to stay for multiple performances and have dinner too.

The following are a few of the activities you will find at the event:

Live music
Face painting (tips encouraged)
Vendor fair
LGBTQ+ resources
Community art activity
Puppy cuddles for a small donation
Hug and acceptance tent
Free Water
Food and other drinks available for purchase
Bouncy house
Yard games
Fountaindale Public Library Bookmobile and storytimes

REGISTER TODAY! Admission is by love donation (a pay-what-you-can model). We don’t want anyone to be excluded! Please choose the appropriate age range and whatever amount is comfortable for you. We are grateful for all of the community support; any amount helps!

All those who choose to make a love donation will receive a swag bag at the picnic – just show ID or bring your ticket printout. Please consider a non-perishable food or diaper donation if you want to donate but are currently low on funds. We will deliver all items donated to a local food pantry. Entries made with pantry donations also qualify for a swag bag. Please choose the relevant ticket type so we can get enough supplies.

We also have a free option for those for whom cost is a barrier.

For corporate donation opportunities or personal donations over $100, please email bolingbrook.pride@gmail.com for details.
