Renton Pride

Renton Pride Picnic 2022

We are in the planning stages for Renton Pride Picnic for 2022, most likely in August. Stay tuned for details!

Renton Pride Passport 2022 Invitation for Businesses

The Renton LGBTQIA+ Community is reaching out to support local businesses by planning a special 2022 activity for Renton this June. We are looking to promote our allies in local businesses, nonprofits, and city services with the Renton Pride Passport. By joining the Pride Passport event, we are asking that you promote your allyship with the LGBTQ community by displaying an LGTBQIA pride flag of your choice for the month of June and consider joining the Safe Place program with the Renton Police Department (if you haven’t already).

What does it look like?
The passport will be a printed map and business directory through which participants can collect a stamp or sticker from the business. Thirty Renton businesses participated in 2021!

What do I need to do?
You may choose a small stamp or sticker of your choice (perhaps your logo or something to symbolize your business) and you are welcome to offer coupons or promotions during this month.

When does it start?
We are envisioning a big kick off on Saturday, June 4th, perhaps with businesses using a sidewalk table promoting the event and any Pride promotion/discounts you would like to share. The activity will begin June 1st and conclude June 30th

It is suggested that business participants provide a $5 donation to help cover the costs of printing. Each participating business will be given 25 Pride Passports to handout to patrons with the potential to be restocked.
