CITY OF DUBLIN TO CELEBRATE “DUBLIN PRIDE WEEK”
SEPTEMBER 19 - OCTOBER 24


DUBLIN, Calif., September 11, 2020 – Dublin Pride Week, the City of Dublin’s annual week-long series of events, which promotes volunteerism and environmental awareness, will be held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will run for five weeks, from Saturday, September 19, through Saturday, October 24.

Due to the Shelter-In-Place Order, there will be no large Volunteer Day to kick off Dublin Pride Week. Instead, the community can participate in several virtual events that work for their schedule. Opportunities that enable residents to give back to the Dublin community include participation in the City of Dublin’s celebration of Coastal Cleanup Day - picking up litter during neighborhood walks throughout the month of September.

The community can support Tri-Valley residents facing food insecurity by donating to one of four local organizations. A link to donate is included on the Dublin Pride Week webpage at https://dublin.ca.gov/210/Dublin-Pride-Week.

Numerous virtual workshops hosted by the City of Dublin and partner organizations will also be provided. See below for a complete list of events:
