Dallas’ June LGBT Pride Month celebration, Razzle Dazzle Dallas, will include an event downtown for the first time in more than 20 years.
The 2013 edition of Razzle Dazzle Dallas—The Main Event will take place in Main Street Garden on June 8, organizers announced Monday.
After a decade hiatus, Razzle Dallas Dallas returned as a multi-day June Pride event in 2011. The reborn Razzle Dazzle Dallas was held on Cedar Springs Road as it had been at the end of the 20-year run of the original event.
This year’s Main Event at Main Street Garden will include entertainment, food and alcohol vendors, as well as retail, nonprofit and art exhibitors and sellers. A $5 admission will be charged. Beneficiaries have not been named.
When it began in the late 1970s, Razzle Dazzle Dallas was held outside the heart of the LGBT community in abandoned downtown warehouses and at the old auto pound on Inwood Road. The event later moved to the Automobile Building at Fair Park and Market Center Hall.
Other Razzle Dazzle Dallas events this year include MetroBall at S4 on June 7 and a pub crawl. A $100 VIP pass will include admission as well as parking, beverages and swag.
