    Moab Pride has always known that Orange is the New Black! You have heard of the traditional “White Party”, well now it’s time to get your Orange On!  Inspired by the color of Moab’s natural red rocks, surround yourself with your own expression of orange. This is the official Moab Pride Kick Off where you can meet and greet fellow. Become “Naturally Engayged” at this event where everyone is encouraged to dress up in the best expression of orange. We encourage all festival goers to combine Orange and Graffiti into the costumes for this annual event while hanging out, chatting and dancing the night away.

NOTE – the parade starts and stops at the same location. Estimated time is One Hour.
