Atlanta Pride announces VIP program for 2013 festival

“APC is excited to offer a new way for community members to experience our festival,” Cooke said. “As our festival has grown and expanded, we want to offer a more robust VIP experience for our supporters. The Kaiser Permanente VIP Hospitality Center has long been an asset to the festival experience, but the addition of the Celebrity Cruises VIP Seating Area enables us to extend that experience to the Meadow and enhance the enjoyment attendees who purchase the VIP Festival Pass can have while watching talent perform on the Coca-Cola Stage.”

A pass purchased in advance will also get you entry into VIP/Sponsor Party at the popular Atlanta Pride Kickoff Party at the Georgia Aquarium.

“Of course, having access to the VIP/Sponsor party as a part of our Kickoff Party at the Georgia Aquarium will give our guests the opportunity to interact with people in a more exclusive setting, which is a nice touch for anyone attending the event,” Cooke added. “We would also like to thank our sponsors Celebrity Cruises and Kaiser Permanente for making these festival elements possible this year.”

The Atlanta Pride Festival will be held at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park Oct. 12-13. For more information on the festival or for more information on VIP passes, please visit
