The event’s organizers, the National Conference for Community Justice of Greater Dayton, have gathered thousands of small stones and attendees are encouraged to paint these rocks with messages supporting LGBTQ+ pride and suicide prevention.

Mental health providers will also be attending Pride Rocks and answering questions regarding available mental health resources.

Guests also have the chance to purchase products from local vendors or try food from a variety of food trucks. The list of participating restaurants includes El Buen Taco, Claybourne Grille and Childer’s Chimney Cakes, the latter of which sells authentic Hungarian desserts.
