After the cancellation of all in-person events during 2020, Sonoma County Pride is proud to announce our Pride Celebration “Rainbow City” concert. The concert event features a diverse lineup of live in-person entertainment. The rapid improvement in the pandemic situation in California has allowed this live concert to be the Bay Area’s first live, in-person music festival event since the 2020 Covid-19 lockdowns.
This year’s Pride concert is the centerpiece of our June LGBTQI+ Pride activities, and features Todrick Hall, special guest Bright Lights, Derrick Barry from RuPaul’s Drag Race as Britney Spears, and Ryan Cassata, as well as special appearances by Cheer SF & DJ Lady Char. The event will be hosted by Starr Love. Presented by Bud Light and Deep Eddy Vodka, “Rainbow City” will take place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 26th. Ticket prices range from $25 – $100 per person, with seating arranged in private “pods” for two to four people, to follow social distancing guidelines.
Capacity is limited and concertgoers are advised to purchase their tickets early, as they this event will surely sell out.
Headliner on the bill is multi-talented Todrick Hall! From recent spots for Target, Virgin America and the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards, to original choreographed music videos, Hall has mastered the art of blending live experience with social media. Featured in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list, he is known worldwide for his YouTube parodies and a breakout appearance on American Idol. He is on track to be one of the next great powerhouses in the entertainment field.
Shawn Brockmeyer, Director of Entertainment for Sonoma County Pride, is proud and hopeful that an event like Rainbow City can be held so soon after the difficulties of 2020. “We recognize that this event and others in Pride month would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors like Graton Resort & Casino, Bud Light, Deep Eddy Spirits and Red Bull, who have graciously doubled their contributions this year. There is no better way to fulfill our mission in 2021 than to unite our community in celebration, and begin to thrive and prosper once more.”
Sonoma County Pride board members Brian Rogers agrees. “What a wonderful way to wrap up an exciting June of community Pride events and kick off the summer season with a burst of positive, hopeful energy!”
