Pride month is just around the corner, and Out Loud Hudson Valley is teaming up with Angry Orchard to bring you a Pride Kick-Off Party like no other. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the famed Angry Orchard Cider House in Walden, NY, this event promises an unforgettable evening of music, entertainment, and celebration of love and acceptance.
On the day of the event, the Cider House will come alive with the beats of two talented DJs. DJ Prephab will be spinning tunes in the lively atmosphere of the upstairs tap room, while DJ Jimmy Prada will be in charge of setting the vibe on the lower level and back lawn area. Their music will provide the perfect soundtrack for an evening of dancing, laughter, and community.
Adding to the excitement of the evening is a special performance by Key West’s live-singing diva, Epiphany Get Paid. Don’t miss her Sunset Cabaret performance on the back lawn, where she will dazzle the crowd with her incredible talent and stage presence. Remember to bring a blanket and find a cozy spot to enjoy the show under the open sky.
