SCMN Pride History

Our group started in 2002, when community members came together to plan the first-ever Pride celebration in south central Minnesota. Since then our group, mandate, outreach —and of course, our Pridefests— have grown substantially.  In 2006 South Central MN Pride was made official and incorporated as a nonprofit organization. While the annual festival remains our highest priority, we now coordinate community events that promote LGBT pride year-round.
