Davis County Pride is Out of This World May 4

Davis County Pride will be held May 4 from noon to 6 p.m. at Layton Commons Park, 437 N Wasatch Dr, Layton, Utah, with the theme “Out of this World. Stand Together. Take Up Space.” Organizers expect around 1,200 people to participate in this third annual event.

The event will include food trucks, vendors with homemade goods and services, organizational booths, GSAs, a play area for youth, and live family-friendly entertainment. Speakers include Jacey Thornton, executive director of Project Rainbow, and Michael ­Aaron, publisher of QSaltLake Magazine.

New this year are souvenir tumblers available for pre-order for $20. The cups are double-walled, vacuum sealed, lead-free, good for hot and cold beverages, and feature this year’s Out of This World theme. Participating vendors will fill the tumbler with a beverage of your choice for $4 at the event. Venmo @davisprideUT and put your color choice of White, Galaxy Black, or Pride Rainbow in the comment line.
