Coralville - Today was the official grand opening of Coralville's newest entertainment venue. It's Tavern Blue and it certainly lived up to all of its hype. Tavern Blue is located at 805 2nd Street in the heart of the historic Coralville Strip.
The day's celebration also brought out local dignitaries including Coralville city Manager Kelly Hayworth.
The wood-burning oven was fired up and the incredible staff was working extremely hard to make sure everyone was having a good time and didn't have to wait long for their orders.
This is of course the home of the First-Ever Coralville Pride Festival on November 7. It's going to be the most impressive Pride Festival of the year!
Coralville's professional hockey team becomes our newest preferred Pride Fest vendor. Thank you, Iowa Heartlanders, for your support of Pride Fest in Coralville! Visit www.Iowaheartlanders.com for tickets and merchandise.

You Can Make A Difference
Would you please visit http://uigoldrush.org/pride and give what you're able to? No amount is too small.
Like all philanthropic funds related to UI Health Care, federal law prohibits the provision of direct patient services (such as money toward medications, surgical procedures, etc.). However, funds can be used to support additional training and education for providers through LGBTQ-focused conferences. Additionally, it could be used to fund a position such as a social worker or care navigator to help assist LGBTQ patients through the complex care system of insurance coverage, prior authorization, and specialty care. Visit the Gold Rush campaign at http://uigoldrush.org/pride.
The Recliners of Iowa City play a wide variety of music, shaped by their own interests and the talents of guest performers who enhance the experience for everyone.
Perhaps “contemporary-pop-folk-indie-rock” most appropriately describes the repertoire of this group of Iowa City denizens who have played together for nearly 25 years. Their music ranges from classic ’60s and ’70s rock to songs by contemporary singer-songwriters. It includes American folk music, Irish melodies, bluegrass, Van Morrison tunes, and edgy rock and ballads of Richard Thompson. Check out the Recliners, and don’t forget your dancing shoes!
As the title states, "location" really does mean everything. It's no different for a Pride Festival. It's certainly not a cliche. Thank you, Tavern Blue, for your inspirational support of our Festival.
Despite all the best efforts, it took us a while to find the perfect host. The wait has been worth it. Tavern Blue is the official site sponsor and host of Pride Fest in Coralville. Check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100068220606201. I'm certain everyone will agree - Tavern Blue is the place to be this fall.
As with any search, our new site required a new event date. The new date and time are 100% confirmed. The new date is Sunday, November 7, noon - 8 pm.
The entertainment will be exceptional. The atmosphere at Tavern Blue is incredible. This will be a Pride Fest to remember!

First Annual Coralville Pride Festival

· Coralville and the surrounding areas make up a suburban community waiting years for an LGBTQ festival.
· June is Pride Month. We must celebrate our gains and remember our losses. Recalling the events that took place at Stonewall reminds everyone of the hard work yet to come. This Pride Festival would not exist if was not for the events at Stonewall and the hard work of our own local Pride Committee.
