Organization Incorporation History
Ogden Pride was organized on Oct. 11, 2014, which was National Coming Out Day, and was incorporated in November 2014, becoming the first Pride organization in Ogden and the fourth such group in Utah.
The board of directors immediately started plans to make alliances with supportive businesses and work with the city of Ogden to bring a Pride Festival to Junction City. Dozens of businesses, associations, non-profit groups, corporate sponsors and individual volunteers worked for months, and their efforts paid off: the first Ogden Pride Festival was held on Aug. 1, 2015.
