Hillcrest Hoedown, tomorrow, Sunday 10/7
In its second annual return, Hillcrest presents another year of the Hoedown! Join us and embrace the fall the season with this inspired street festival on Sunday, October 7 from 1 pm to 9:30 pm. We’re inviting San Diego into the heart of Hillcrest on University Avenue between Normal Street and Vermont Avenue. The Hoedown will feature a grand stage with a country themed line up all day long, and line-dancing lessons on the hour, so break out those cowboy boots!
There will be 21+ Street Side Saloon and a huge country style dance floor. NOTE: The Street Side Saloon will be staffed by the San Diego Chapter of the Golden State Rodeo. All of the tips and a portion of the sales will go back to The Rodeo Community Fund. Our own Mr. San Diego Leather 2011, Kurt, is running for a Board position with the Rodeo in a few weeks and has been a member of The Rodeo for two years.. Rumor has it for every $100 in tips he makes he will drop one article of clothing (keeping it street legal of course). So please join us throughout the day at the Srtreetside Saloon at Richmond St and University. Kurt and the Rodeo Gang will be mixing drinks most of the day and evening.
This event is friendly for all ages. Cop a squat on a hay bail by the dance floor and watch all the action! This year stay past dusk and hit the casino tables in our free streetside saloon, cowboys and cowgirls will be dealing up blackjack, craps and roulette from 5:30 – 9:30 PM on the streets of Hillcrest. And DJ’s will be spinning country style dance music from 6:30 – 9:30 PM

We call on our Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) community and on all of our allies from many movements to join us for the 8th year of Action for Social and Economic Justice. Let’s come together to let the world know that TGNC rights will not be undermined and together we will not be silenced!

San Diego is the first in the nation to honor this day by raising a flag, and we hope you join us for history in the making!
Then the big ceremony will be Tuesday evening the same date where the Leather Color Guard led by Kurt will take down the Transgender Flag at 6:45 PM followed by an open social event at The Center for refreshments and speeches by Community Leaders.
Both flag ceremonies will be held at the new Hillcrest Pride Flag location at Normal and University Streets.
