Thank You For a Great Pride 2016!

Mansfield Gay Pride Association would like to thank everyone for their support this weekend! Our second festival was fantastic and we could not be happier! Over the next month, the team will be working to close out the season. We will soon post photos from the Mansfield Gay Pride Festival and the After Party, hosted at Sami’s Bar.

Thank you to our sponsors, Mansfield News Journal, Sami’s Bar, Outlook Media, AdultMart, Equitas Health, Richland Bank, Huntington Bank, Love on a Mission, Toth and Team, Buckeye Thrift, Miller Lite, and LGC Hair Studios. Thank you to the City of Mansfield, Lori Cope, Mark Abrams, and the Parks Management team! Thank you to the Mansfield Police Department, Captain Shari Robertson, and the other officers that attended the festival and parade! Thank you to the entertainers, DJ’s, and speakers that appeared at Pride. Thank you to Samantha Styles and all of the entertainers and staff at Sami’s Bar! Most of all, thank you to the dedicated committee members and volunteers that organized and ran the festival this weekend. None of this would have been possible without the support and dedication of these individuals.

We begin planning Mansfield Gay Pride 2017 in September! If anyone is interested in joining the Mansfield Gay Pride Committee and volunteering for the community, please reach out to Kevin Kincaid-Shoaf by sending an email to for an application.
