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.

Visibility March - "Naturally Engayged" - Moab's pride is the evolution of individual expression and freedom. Moab's "People Powered" Visibility March encourages all to participate in this organic gathering. The World famous Art Car "The Chundra" (designed by Artist Mac Maker) heralds the coming crowd to the beat of the FIERY FURNACE MARCHING BAND (led by Jeff Gutierrez – classically trained Jazz musician from Arizona State University). March on bikes, skates, skateboards, unicycles or just your own two legs! March in costume or your favorite attire! The route is a simple Loop that takes marchers through town.
