The Pride Festival in Sturgeon Bay that promotes diversity through inclusion for all will not happen in 2020. Open Door Pride announced Monday that their fourth annual festival that was scheduled for Saturday, June 27, in Martin Park has been canceled. Founder and organizer Cathy Grier says the decision was painful, but alternate plans are already being made to celebrate and support diversity in Door County.
The City of Sturgeon Bay's proclamation of Pride Month in June will still go on as scheduled. Grier adds that the annual Sandy Brown award given to an individual or organization that has shown dedication to the LGBTQ community will still be presented.
