Party in the Park – 3:30 pm 

Spend the afternoon being inspired by speakers, enchanted by the art of drag queens, and delighted by music and dancing as the festival continues in downtown Decorah at the corner of Heivly and River St, across from the Post Office.

Get a team together or join one when you arrive as we all test our knowledge of important history, culture, and contributions of LGBTQIA+ folk during 3 rounds of trivia. This is an event for all ages.
