Vendor supported event
The Lockhart Pride event is free and open to the public, and subsidized through the sales of booth spaces to the vendors. We understand it may be difficult for smaller operations to pay the fee, however, without vendor support this event could not be held. We appreciate each and every vendor that is able to participate.
