Festival Policies


+ Inclusion

Reading Pride Celebration welcomes participation by all people regardless of age, creed, gender, gender identity, HIV status, national origin, physical or mental development ability, race, religion, and/or sexual orientation and asks all participants to engage in non-discriminating behaviors by respecting all other participants. This is a family event and children are present. Nudity, profanity and obscenity is prohibited and violators will be asked to leave. Also, events such as ours may attract protesters and we strongly suggest that no one engage in conversation with them.

+ Pets

We welcome dogs as a cherished part of our Reading Pride Celebration family. We ask that you follow a few guidelines to make sure everyone enjoys their day.

  • Never leave your dog alone for any reason at any time, including when you use the restroom.
  • Keep your dog on a leash at all times, unless your dog is a service animal and being on-leash directly impacts their ability to do their job.
  • If you need to approach another dog and their person, please give verbal warning. Blind and visually impaired individuals especially need this.
  • For everyone’s comfort, please clean up your dog’s waste.
  • You are responsible for keeping your dog under control. If your dog becomes a direct threat, you will be asked to remove the dog from the festival grounds.
  • Sun and heat are especially hard for our furry companions. Please take advantage of available shade and water for your furry friends.

+ Smoking

READING PRIDE CELEBRATION 2017 IS SMOKE FREE

Reading Pride Celebration is proud to support LGBT community health, and is proud that our pride festival will be designated as smoke free this year! This is made possible thanks to a grant that our friends at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center received from the PA Department of Health to raise awareness about the effects of tobacco on the LGBT Community.

+ Weather

Reading Pride Celebration is rain or shine! Tickets are not refundable if during the festival inclement weather or an emergency forces an early closing.
