This is the biggest on-campus celebration of the queer and allied community, held during spring quarter annually. Beginning in 2006, the march has generally begun at noon on a Saturday in May at the Quarry Plaza in front of the Bookstore and winds through all the UCSC colleges ending at Lower Street, Kresge College where The Festival begins. The event is open to the public with no admission charge. Sponsored by Kresge Programs Office, the Festival provides visibility for a number of student organizations and campus departments as well as an opportunity for various student performances.
