Our Pride Partner, Hawks & Reed, is hosting the 2nd annual Franklin County Pride Drag Brunch with Hors and Friends. While you enjoy a buffet-style brunch, or get your fill of adult drinks at the cash bar, drag performers will dazzle you with lip syncs, high energy dance numbers, feats of acrobatics, comedic routines and more! Drag Brunch with Hors and Friends may contain adult language and content. Get your event tickets here.

Event Accessibility

Franklin County Pride values the experiences and voices of all ages, especially elders and youth, and we strive to make our events family friendly and accessible for all. We aim for inclusion for those with physical and mobility challenges, and audio and visual impairment. Please contact franklincountypride@gmail.com with additional questions.

 

At the FC Pride March and Rally accessibility strategies include:

  • ASL interpretation of the performance.

  • Large print programs available for those with visual impairment.

  • Reserved parking for folks with official disability plates or placards.

  • Venue is fully wheelchair-accessible, including wide gravel access down to stage area. Some vendors will only be accessible via grass.

  • Shade tent with seating.

  • Gender-neutral and wheelchair-accessible porta potty at both march launch point and at event.

  • The event is outside, which we hope will help make it accessible to people with chemical sensitivities.

Parking for Parade Participants

There is temporary parking for parade participants behind Greenfield Middle School and The Blessed Sacrament Church lot on Beacon Street. We suggest carpooling from downtown Greenfield to Greenfield Middle School before the lineup, that way your vehicles will already be very close to the festivities at the Energy Park after the parade. More info for parade participants can be found on our Parade Info page.

Rally Parking

 

Reserved Parking

1) There will be several spaces reserved for folks with official disability plates or placards at the base of Miles Street, adjacent to the Energy Park.

2) There will be a limited number of designated parking spots for the Classic Cars and Parade Motorcycles on display for all to enjoy at the base of Miles Street, adjacent to the Energy Park.

3) Rally Vendors and Entertainers are welcome to unload items at the base of Miles Street. A couple of spaces in the Miles Street lot will be reserved for designated entertainers requiring special accommodations. All others will be directed to other parking accommodations nearby or may use any of the public parking options listed below.

Public Parking

There are several options for parking at short distances from the event.

1) There is a public parking garage at 40 Olive Street with ample parking for $0.25/hour, which is very close to the Energy Park's Bank Row entrance (via stairway). After parking, follow signage to the Energy Park. Again, access by this entrance involves a stairway.

2) There is public parking at the Downtown Economy Lot between Chapman Street and Davis Street, behind Wilson's department store. Free Saturday parking is available at this large lot a short walk from the park.

3) There is public parking at other downtown locations. The Town of Greenfield has a website to help you find additional parking.
