Chill Out & Proud is an annual Pride & Folk Festival in Somerset, Kentucky organized by PFLAG Somerset. Chill Out and Proud delivers a family-friendly & all-inclusive community Pride arts event, where you can "chill out" and "be proud". Chill Out and Proud offers the LGBTQ+ community and our allies a fully-affirming pride festival, where you can be free to be yourself. Our inaugural festival was held in 2019 at the downtown Judicial Center plaza in Somerset. COVID-19 forced us and many others to move to virtual events in 2020. The result was Chill In and Proud, a virtual version of our annual festival. Chill Out and Proud returns in 2021 at Somerset Community College's Festival Field. See you there!
