Pride Storefront Decorating Contest

CHSPride_Logo_4C_woSymbolThroughout the Charleston Pride Festival Week (September 16-23, 2017), we’ll host a variety of events around town, including our 8th annual Pride Parade down historic King Street on September 23, 2017!

To kickstart the celebration, we’d like to invite you to participate in an inaugural STOREFRONT DECORATING CONTEST. This is a free promotional opportunity for local businesses to showcase their support for the LGBT community. Windows will be judged on the following criteria: use of color, message and pride theme. Decorations need to be in place by September 9 (in time for Second Sunday!) and should remain on display through September 24. This is a unique and fun opportunity to show Charleston that you support equality.

Charleston Pride will promote participating businesses using social media (9,000+ followers), email campaigns (1,800+ people), and press releases. The contest winner will be announced at the Pride Festival on September 23 and online via social media, email campaign and press release the following week. You will also receive a full-page ad in the 2018 Charleston Pride Guide (print and digital)!

To participate, please register online (down below!) by September 1st.

The information you provide will enter you into the contest, allow us to promote your business and tell people how to find you!


We look forward to celebrating Charleston Pride with you!
