In celebration of the Lafayette City Council’s declaration of pride month, Sugarwolf Outdoor Exchange is proud to present the first-ever Lafayette Pride Event on June 26, 2021.

Taking place in Downtown Lafayette, this event is a day of community, inclusion and acceptance, says Sugarwolf Outdoor Exchange owner Wendy Dorfman.

“We are grateful for the support, and enthusiastic participation of local business as we create a safe and welcoming space downtown for the LGBTQIA+ community here in Acadiana. It is our hope that the day is full of love, acceptance and visibility," Dorfman says.

Raffles and prizes will be happening at Sugarwolf Outdoors, 501 Jefferson Street, Saturday starting at 11 am. Businesses downtown will be decorated for pride, offering a variety of food and drink specials as well as a Pride map to follow along.

Participating businesses can be found on Sugarwolf Outdoors social media event page [loom.ly].
