The Fate of Coralville PrideFest now in doubt
GoGuide Magazine has decided that it is not within its mission to be a lead organizer of this event or any event of this type. At this point, no organization or group has offered to take over the responsibilities of organizing such an event. The event had an incredible organic groundswell of interest, and many commented it was time for Coralville to have its celebration of LGBTQ Pride.
If anyone is interested in becoming the official organizer of the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are some things in place that you may like to access.
GoGuide Magazine is proud to sponsor as many events as possible including Mission Creek Festival in 2019 and Iowa City Pride in past years. GoGuide has also sponsored several One Iowa events and many more. GoGuide will continue to sponsor as many non-profit events as possible.
The original event was scheduled to place Sunday, September 1, 2019, at Coralville Center for Performing Arts.
UAY’s 14th Annual Festival of Flowers May 23, 2019
According to UAY’s event Facebook page, the Festival of Flowers is a creative fundraising event that supports UAY’s outstanding work with youth and families in Johnson County and surrounding areas.
Professionals, amateurs, and youth are invited to submit entries of floral art, fresh flower arrangements, and container gardens which are displayed, judged and auctioned off.
This year’s entries will be inspired by the theme of “Coexisting,” an idea borrowed from the downtown Iowa City Mural Project created by Sayuri Sasaki Hemann and UAY Youth this past summer.
The Festival of Flowers event offers wine, hors d’oeuvres, music and a silent auction between 5:30-7pm.
A live auction featuring award-winning floral designs and other high-end packages begins at 7 pm. All proceeds benefit youth and families served by UAY.

One Iowa’s 10th Annual Gala Sold out
All 1200 tickets were sold one month in advance of the 10th annual gala.
One Iowa started its annual Gala Celebration tradition in 2010 to commemorate Varnum v. Brien, the momentous Iowa Supreme Court case making Iowa the third in the nation to embrace marriage equality.
Since then, LGBTQ Iowans and allies have come together each year to celebrate and honor the LGBTQ advocates working to preserve and advance equality for LGBTQ Iowans. This year marks ten years since that momentous decision.
One Iowa Executive Director Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel said, “Coming together as a community to honor our successes, celebrate one another, and enjoy each other’s company is truly an inspiring experience. Selling out over one month in advance and hitting capacity for the ballroom is unprecedented for this event.”
The event is Friday, April 12 at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center.
