25th Annual Nashville Pride Festival brings hundreds downtown

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Nashville's 25th annual Pride Festival celebrated at the riverfront this weekend.

Hundreds of people showed up to raise awareness about the LGBT community.

Three stages featured live music throughout the day. There was also over 100 local vendors, several food trucks, an artists' village, a kids' zone and more.

The festival moved to Riverfront Park about five years ago because of it's expanding presence.

"Nashville Pride is really just an opportunity for all of our folks in the community to come out and show that we're proud not just of our community, but we are not embarrassed of who we are. We are proud of who we are and our contribution to this community. We are teachers, parents, brothers, sisters, tax payers. We are part of this community and we are proud of that," said Joseph Woodson.   

The event kicks off Equality Week presented by Vanderbilt University.
