On Saturday, August 29, 2009, the 8th Annual Sistahs Steppin’ In Pride March and Festival will take place at Lake Merritt and Snow Park in Oakland, California. The celebration honors the rich history and remarkable presence of the East Bay’s diverse lesbian, queer, and bisexual women’s community. Sistahs Steppin’ festivities offer a day of community, celebration and fun, with a pride march around Lake Merritt, and a “Sistah Village” featuring entertainment, food, games, arts & crafts vendors, and community organizations.

MARCH: We’ll gather at the Lake Merritt pillars at 11am and march at NOON. With drums, banners, and the voices of hundreds of women, we will take to the streets LOUD & PROUD!

Festival: The free celebration continues from 1 to 5pm at the Sistah Village in Snow Park (Harrison between 19th & 20th Streets). EVERYONE is invited! Eat good food, meet great folks, enjoy talented performers, check out local artisans, and receive useful information and resources. There’s also a special children’s area and an elders’ space to enjoy. Come spend the day with us!
