WATERVILLE — Waterville Creates and other downtown businesses are set to kick off Pride Month on Friday, June 7.

On the first Friday of every month, people visit downtown Waterville to meet artists, see performances, listen to live music, eat delicious food, shop at local businesses, enjoy the arts, and come together as a community, according to Waterville Creates’ Jackie Ferlito.

Waterville Creates celebrates June to honor LGBTQIA+ experiences and history. The Waterville Public Library, Greene Block + Studios, Colby College Museum of Art, and many more will also be participating Friday evening.

Other organizations that support the LGBTQIA+ community have been invited to table inside the Paul J. Schupf Art Center, 93 Main Street, on the night of June 7. Similarly, LGBTQIA+ vendors and artists have also been invited to sell their work in Castonguay Square.

Pride First Friday will take place from 5-7 p.m. in downtown Waterville. For a full list of events and Pride films being shown throughout June by the Maine Film Center, visit watervillecreates.org/pride.
