Watertown Pride


Celebrate Pride in the Thousand Islands all weekend long and beyond! Events kick off Friday, June 14 at the historic Paddock Arcade, with The Paddock Club supplying food and drink specials, followed by drag show performances. Get an early start on Saturday with a flag raising at City Hall. The event begins at 10 AM but arrive early–this draws a crowd. Join the Q Center at ACR Health for a Drag Story Hour. At noon, head to Stone Street for all kinds of Pride festivities downtown. That evening, the entertainment comes to you when MissAmber Skyy’s traveling drag show moves from bar to bar, gracing each one with a 20-minute performance. On Sunday, wrap up Watertown Pride weekend with a Tea Dance at Garland City Beer Works from 2 PM- 5 PM, a local LGBTQIA+-owned brewery. Looking for even more ways to celebrate Pride in the Thousand Islands? Stick around for River Pride the following weekend, with celebrations taking place all along the St. Lawrence River in communities like Cape Vincent, Clayton, and Alexandria Bay. Main event, Saturday, June 15, 10 AM-3PM, free.
