Over the years, Richmond has developed a huge supportive culture of the LGBTQ community and Quirk has helped to drive that. We could not be prouder of our diverse little city. Looking to get in on all the Pride-related fun Richmond offers this month? We have some excellent packages to celebrate, including a Pride-themed amenity, and a $25 credit to Q Rooftop Bar, our cozy lobby coffee bar or Maple and Pine, our regionally focused restaurant.
This year the annual VA Pridefest takes place on Saturday, September 28. The family-friendly event takes place on Brown’s Island from noon to 8 p.m. Local vendors from all over the city come out to show their support of the LGBTQ community and so many Richmonders make an appearance. In addition to a variety of local food and drink vendors, the all-day festivities include live music, dance parties and some of the city’s best drag queens.
At Quirk, however, we strongly believe Pride is a year-round event. So, we roll out the rainbow carpet every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month for Thirst, a fabulous party on our rooftop where we invite our own DJ's to help us throw down in celebration of Richmond’s LGBTQ community. Our Thirst events often include free samples, giveaways and competitions/raffles from our sponsors. Past sponsors have included Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Sky Vodka.
