Chill Out & Proud is an annual Pride & Folk Festival in Somerset, Kentucky organized initially by PFLAG Somerset. They are now incorporated as their own 501(c)(3)! 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. Their 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 and 2021. The result was Chill In and Proud, a virtual version of our annual festival. Chill Out and Proud was held in 2022 at Somerset Community College's Festival Field. Watch for their announcements and updates for 2023!!!
Chill Out and Proud transformed in 2020 into Chill In and a Proud, a virtual pride festival, viewed from the comfort of your home.
