Show Your Pride in NWPA with the 2024 Pride on the Bay T-Shirt!

Erie, get ready to shine! Pride Fest is moving to a brand new location this year – Liberty Park! Mark your calendars (Saturday, June 29th) because Pride on the Bay 2024 promises to be bigger and better than ever. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, I'm thrilled to unveil the official 2024 t-shirt design! This year marks my sixth year collaborating with the NWPA Pride Alliance and I'm really excited to bring this new design to you all!

This collaboration with the NWPA Pride Alliance has been a true honor. It all started with me winning the design contest for the t-shirt years ago. After a couple of years I was directly contracted to create the design, and now I have the privilege of providing my design services as part of the board.

This year's design draws inspiration from Erie's magnificent bayfront. The vibrant colors of the Progressive Pride Flag wrap around the shoreline, creating a beautiful abstract bay visual.

We'll be using a printing technology called 4-color process screen printed transfers for create the shirts. This allows us to include all the colors of the Progressive Pride Flag for a truly inclusive design, while still keeping the shirts affordable for the community. Plus, this technology delivers high-quality, super colorful prints that everyone will love!

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your limited-edition 2024 Pride on the Bay t-shirt and head down to Liberty Park to celebrate with the Erie LGBTQ+ community! It's going to be an unforgettable event. These shirts (along with hoodies and tank tops) are now available for pre-order on the NWPA Pride Alliance web site under Shop at: nwpapride.org. See you there!
