History of Out On The Brazos
Each year, the Waco Pride Network hosts OUT on Brazos, a festival celebrating the Greater Waco LGBTQ+ community and its allies. The day-long event features musical performances, food trucks, vendors and community. The event takes place in October of each year to commemorate National Coming Out Day (also, y’all, it’s HOT in Waco in June).
The 2019 festivities sponsored by Lake Air Pool Supply blew us away as more than 500 attendees came to the day-long celebration, which featured more than 40 vendors, multiple musicians, a drag show, community speeches and so much more.
It all began in 2017 when the OUT on the Brazos Planning Committee relaunched Waco Pride. What began as a picnic grew to an event of 200-400 people in Cameron Park and received substantial local coverage.
In 2018, the Waco Pride Network officially organized and launched as a nonprofit to host the OUT on the Brazos event. Despite inclement weather, the event was attended by about 250 people over three hours.
After some difficult discussions, the Waco Pride Network board decided to cancel the 2020 OUT on the Brazos pride festival.
Out On The Brazos will take place in October 2023 at Brazos Park East. Stay tuned for more details.
