Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: Rainbows Festival Presented by Phoenix Pride

The Rainbows Festival, Phoenix Pride's second largest LGBTQ (after Phoenix Pride Festival), is happening this weekend October 6 and 7 at Heritage Square Park.

This ever-growing street fair and festival which celebrates the diversity of the LGBTQ community draws a combined total of nearly 150 exhibitors and sponsors as well as over 12,000 attendees- best of all, admission is free.

The two day event, which lasts from 10am to 6pm Saturday and Sunday, will feature a full lineup of food, drink, and of course, entertainment.

Featured acts include: DJ Kela, Desert Overture, Anaya Tribal, Birthday Suit Burlesque, Sisterzz Twisted, Devinography Hip Hop Jam, "Troubador Cafe" starring Kenyata White, DJ Anthony, Dawn Bowman, Tracey Rapp & the Heat, Freddy's Spotlight @Rainbows, Phoenix Pride Royalty, "Stop Blowin," Phoenix Heatwave, and Barbara Seville's Phoenix Phollies.

There will also be a Junior Mr. and Miss Gay Pride Pageant and a Creative Expression Exhibit happening at the OUTdayPHX Stage.

The stage serves as a venue for personal coming out stories in all forms of self-expression (art, dance, music, poetry, etc.) and commemorates National Coming Out Day, which is nationally recognized on October 11th.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
