Pride Along the River 2021

Pride Along the River is the first annual pride event by Healthy Communities of the Capital Area (HCCA). The event is taking place throughout the month of June in the following locations:

  • Augusta Downtown
  • Hallowell Water Street
  • Gardiner Main Street

Participating businesses in all three locations will be hosting artwork created by local youth artists. The artwork is based around the theme of what it feels and looks like to youth to matter to their community. In addition to displaying artwork, some local restaurants may be promoting pride-themed food and/or non-alcoholic beverages. This page will frequently be updated with the names of participating organizations and businesses!
