Sac Pride Puts Call Out for Entertainers

Think you’ve got what it takes to thrill the masses in Sacramento? Or maybe you’ve got a favorite local band that does? Either way, The Sacramento Pride Entertainment Committee wants to hear from you.

The Committee has begun the search for performers and DJs to fill the schedule on three live entertainment stages for the upcoming 2010 Sacramento Pride Festival.



The day-long festival will be held Saturday, June 19, at Sacramento’s iconic Capitol Mall.

“The Sacramento Pride Entertainment Committee is looking for a good mix of upbeat acts that will have broad appeal to the diverse segments of our community,” said Sacramento Pride Chair Josh Jacoby.

Performers and DJs who want the coveted stage time are being asked to submit descriptions of their acts, Web site URLs, or other promotional materials to be considered by the four-member committee. The committee will select performers based on type of act, performance quality and audience appeal.

The Festival is moving to a new location this year at Capitol Mall, after a number of years at South Side Park, and will feature two live entertainment stages and a high-energy dance area, as well as roving performers. This year’s Pride is expected to attract some 10,000 visitors as the result of expanded marketing and outreach efforts for the 26-year-old event.

Sacramento Pride is produced by and supports the programs and services of the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center (, which provides youth services, free legal clinic and numerous other social support services targeted to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
