PrideFest: That's a Wrap (we want your feedback)

32 of the Broadway BIA rate-payers opted in on the "free" space for PrideFest Capitol Hill as part of the BBIA's sponsorship of the event. We hope it was a successful event for all! It was a record day on Broadway, with 40,000-50,000 attendees throughout the day, 5 stages of entertainment, and a perfect 74 degree day.

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK ON THE EVENT!
This survey takes just 2 minutes. Please help us gather more information for both the BBIA and PrideFest to improve PrideFest for next year.

We're already looking forward to 2019...
