Show Your Pride!

Show your support for our diverse LGBTQ community this Sunday, June 25th at the 2017 Twin Cities Pride Festival. We’ll be marching as sponsors in the Pride Parade from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. with other local Twin Cities food co-ops including Seward, the Wedge, Lakewinds, and Eastside. Our collective Twin Cities Co-ops theme is a rainbow of shopping carts. 15 staff members from Mississippi Market will be wearing Co-op Pride t-shirts and marching with festive green shopping carts that we created. Join us and the greater LGBTQ community as we celebrate diversity, foster inclusion, and raise awareness of equity and equality issues. Share your Pride photos on social media with hashtag #cooppride!

The parade starts on Hennepin Avenue and 3rd Street in downtown Minneapolis and ends near Loring Park. Parking can be difficult, so it is recommended that you carpool, take public transit, bike, or walk to get to the event. Highway construction on I-94 and light rail construction in downtown Minneapolis may affect travel routes and times; please plan accordingly. We hope to see you there!
