Iowa City Pride will hold its belated 50th anniversary event in October 2021 instead of June, the group announced Wednesday.

“Pride will look a little different in 2021, maybe more like a lame Middle school dance, with social distancing rather than the packed, sweaty, 15,000-person festival we celebrated in 2019,” the group announced in a media advisory posted on its Facebook page. “But you can be sure that we will be very colorful and full of Pride.”

IC Pride decided to cancel last year’s festival, held in June for the past 50 years. This year’s delay is focused on “safety,” the group said in its announcement.
