PRIDE 2021 Sponsor/Vendor Interest

PRIDE 2021 Diamonds and Denim is underway. The response from the business and nonprofit community has been overwhelming since the information was released. We are so happy and proud that so many organizations want to be a part of this historic pride parade in Abilene, Texas.

While we are currently sorting out sponsorships, vendor spaces, and parade floats, we still want to capitalize on all of the buzz around PRIDE 2021 right now. That's why we have decided to create an interest list for possible vendors and sponsors for the event in September.

If you are interested in vendor space or sponsoring the PRIDE 2021, please fill in the contact form below so we can keep you in the loop as things progress.

This form is not in any way an obligation to participate. It is a means for us to track interest and keep possible sponsors and vendors in the loop as these opportunities become available.
