Austin Pride is dedicated to ensuring that all of our guests experience a wonderful weekend. To make this possible, we have created an array of features designed to make Pride and its events accessible to everyone. Here at Pride, we strive to make your visit enjoyable and accessible; if you are unable to find information for an accommodation, a service, or if you have a general question regarding accessibility, please contact Chelsea Vaughan with the Outreach team at 512-630-2644, or email at Chelsea.Vaughan@austinpride.org. I will get back with you in 24-48 hrs.
