“Gay Pride was not born of a need to celebrate being gay, but our right to exist without persecution. So instead of wondering why there isn’t a straight parade be thankful you don’t need one,” Dr. Ron Holt.
Pride is back!
We are thrilled to announce the 10th Annual 5 Points Realty Charlotte Pride Mimosa Party. This will be our first in-person pride event since 2019 (pre Covid-19) and we can’t wait to see all of your beautiful faces! Over the years, our Mimosa Party has grown from a small backyard garden party to the unofficial kick-off to Charlotte Pride weekend.
Our annual Mimosa Party is important to us. The owners of 5 Points Realty fully believe in inclusion and diversity. They built our company on this belief and it is at the core of everything 5PR is about. Our friends, neighbors, family, and business associates appreciate our commitment to Pride each year.
Here are the details:
- Saturday, August 20th
- 415 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte 28216
- The party includes a DJ and mimosas, so wear your party shoes!
- We want everyone to be joyful and have fun! So, please be safe and don’t drive.

The 5PR Mimosa Party is followed by the Charlotte Pride Festival at Uptown at S. Tryon and 4th Street. Local artists and entertainers will start performing at 1pm, with the Charlotte Pride Drag Pageant at 3:30pm. You can find details on performers on the Charlotte Pride website.
Sunday, August 21st at 1pm is Charlotte Pride’s main event: the parade. More than 40 floats and 170 groups will strut down N. Tryon Street
