Pride Steps and Bridge
To celebrate Pride Month, rainbow flags and stairs will take over the Galena Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Galena. It is a stunning tribute to those who have fought for inclusivity and equal rights. It is also a fabulous photo opportunity for visiting tourists, and locals! Pride flags will be given away at the NEW visitor center in the Galena Train Depot all month of June.

Pride Picnic
Innkeepers Alex and Geoff are planning Galena's FIRST EVER Pride Picnic. Plans sometimes get derailed and that's OK. We have cancelled the 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but look forward to gathering with neighbors and allies for an even bigger celebration this year! Alex & Geoff have moved to Galena from NYC where they were event managers. They are happy to help coordinate the first pride celebration and look forward to gathering a group of folks to help plan the 2022 event.

Friday June 11th:
Pride Kick Off Event at Ashton Hill Farms! Drag Show featuring Key City Pride! (Ticketed Event at 7PM) The following day, Saturday, June 12th is the Pride Picnic in Grant Park.

June starts the busy season in Galena! Make sure to book your historic Felt Manor stay before all of are rooms become completely booked.
