Oneonta Pride Alliance's signature event, Pridefest kicks off tomorrow. Started in 2017, Pridefest in Oneonta has grown exponentially. Estimates show that last year's event drew in over a thousand people to downtown Oneonta.

For this year, the theme is "Follow the Rainbow Home". Live music, entertainment, drag shows, vendors, community resources, kids activities, yoga and more are all on the menu for the day.
