Upstate Pride After Party Announcement

It’s no secret each year Upstate Pride holds the annual Pride March and Festival in Barnet Park in Downtown Spartanburg, and every year it gets hotter and hotter. Upstate Pride is kicking off the 9th annual Pride event with a bang. This year they will feature entertainment with local drag stars as well as 5 from Rupaul’s Drag Race.¬†Alexis Michelle, BeBe Zahara Benet, Kimora Blac, Nina Bonina Brown, and Yara Sofia will take the Barnet Park stage at 3 p.m.

The After Party this year will be held at the Marriott in Downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina and will feature a drag show at 9PM.

Fans who want a more interactive experience may purchase tickets to the VIP area, a new feature for the March & Festival. Ticket holders will enjoy a special meet-and-greet with the RPDR performers as well as members of The Greenville Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

Two ticket levels are available. Those who buy a Pride Pass ticket receive complimentary beverages and snacks, a T-shirt, and a souvenir lanyard. A VIP ticket offers additional perks such as free alcoholic drinks, $50 worth of commemorative prizes, and free VIP access to the official After Party at Spartanburg Marriott.

Tickets can be purchased now through Upstate Pride’s website. Don’t wait to long though this event will sell out fast.

This event is sponsored by: Upstate Pride, Amanduh Pleaze, and Pardon Moi French



  1. Is it not going to be the same performers that we saw in the festival at the after party? What makes it so different that we should have to pay that much for the after party?

  2. Why is the after party no longer being hosted by 29? I’ve been in the community for years & it’s always been hosted by them .. why the sudden change?
