Fresh Fruit Festival

PRIDE RIVER CROSSING @ Fresh Fruit Festival 2012


Presented over the course of two weeks, the FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL showcases the wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community through a diverse array of artistic expression and artists.  Last year’s festival included 26 plays, 9 dance pieces, 3 cabarets, 2 films, a spoken word evening, a return of the hit queer memoir series, an opera, and a new art retrospective about LGBTQ homeless youth.

The Fresh Fruit Festival is presented by All Out Arts to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s unique perspective, creativity & diversity, and to build links between the LGBTQ artistic communities, be they local or international.
