Each year the Waco Pride Network hosts the Out on Brazos festival to celebrate Waco’s LGBTQ community and its allies. The festival features musical performances, food trucks, vendors and community. The festival takes place in October of each year to commemorate national coming out day (also it's HOT in Waco in June).

In 2017, the Out on the Brazos Planning Committee came together to relaunch Waco Pride. What began as a picnic grew to an event that hosted between two hundred and four hundred people in Cameron Park and received substantial local coverage. (More on the first Out on the Brazos can be found here: Waco Tribune-Herald)

In 2018, the Waco Pride network was officially organized and launched as a non-profit to host the Out on the Brazos event. Despite inclement weather the event was attended by 250 people over three hours. (More on the second Out on the Brazos can be found here: Waco Tribune-Herald)

Planning for Out on the Brazos 2019 has not fully begun, but a date and location are set. If you are interested in helping plan next year's event please email volunteers@wacopride.org.

Out on the Brazos is intended to be a yearly celebration.
