LGBT pride festival[edit] Since 1993, committee volunteers have organized the Eugene/Springfield Pride Festival each year in August, rather than in June, "which is Pride Month, but you know that unique Eugene thing: We're different,"[1] according to the town's alternative newspaper. "Plus, we're too busy at the pride celebrations of the city to the north in June. So: We're later, we're smaller, but we're still proud."[1] The Eugene/Springfield Pride Festival is supported by sponsorships and volunteer help.[2]
