Summer Fun in Bay City


Perceptions is excited to announce the 2020 Great Lakes Bay PRIDE Festival on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at
Wenonah Park in downtown Bay City. Our festival aims to build a community that inspires engagement, equality, and respect for all throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region and beyond. The Great Lakes Bay PRIDE Festival is a family-friendly event that will bring together art, retail, food, and resource vendors from around the region. We’ll also feature live entertainment, activities for kids and adults, an adult beverage area, and more! The daytime festival is FREE for everyone to attend.
