T. Thomason Hosts a Pride Concert!
July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
We’re collaborating with the Deep Roots Festival and the Wolfville Summer Concert Series to bring you a pride concert hosted by T. Thomason! Following Pride by the Sea T. will take the stage for an afternoon of tunes from both T. and up-and-coming queer artists!
This is a family-friendly, free event.
Thoughtful and true, T. Thomason’s songs shine through the darkness in the world. Since he began releasing music as a teenager, Halifax-based Thomason has been on a journey of discovery. Lead by curiosity as his way of being, Thomason approaches songwriting as a commitment to “Say tough things tenderly,” a practice that reveals an impressive depth of wisdom, clarity and courage in the young artist. Thomason’s attentive, confident presence is felt in all aspects of his music, in songs that build from ballad to banger, in songs that balance confession, confrontation and resolution, in songs that lay it all bare. Highly recommended for sweet bbs in their truest colours, and specifically guaranteed for fans of MUNA, Maggie Rogers, Troye Sivan and Kim Petras.
Soulful Saint John singer-songwriter, Catherine Kennedy invites you into music where each song tells someone’s story, and allows you to connect your own within it. Her music is a place where fact and fiction meet and nostalgia seeps in. Catherine released her solo EP Fifty-Fifty Chance in 2018, took some time to perform on stages around the east coast such as Area 506, Folly Fest, Paddlefest and Shivering Songs, and released her debut album in 2022 alongside her band. As well as being the winner of Breakthrough Artist of the Year (2022), she was also nominated for Recording of the Year and Song of the Year for the Music New Brunswick Awards.
The Pride Concert hosted by T. Thomason will be held at the Wolfville Waterfront Park. May it be noted that Waterfront Park has gravel-based walkways, a wooden board wharf and is subject to general street noise and passersby.
The majority of the park is accessed on grass; however, if you utilize a wheelchair or other mobility supports that do not operate well on grassed areas, the wooden wharf is a great spot to enjoy the show.
There is minimal shade available in the park. Accessible parking and Public washrooms are located in a neighbouring building at Rail Town adjacent to the Waterfront Park parking lot.
A low-sensory area will be set up at Pride by the Sea. The area will be under the shade of a tent, and include access to seating, cold drinks and fidget items.
If you want to watch the show but might appreciate something to do with your hands, Valley Pride will provide fidget items at the event.
We invite you to consider this and your own personal ability before attending.
Masks are welcome but not required.
There will be ASL interpretation for this event.
The closest Accessible parking is located at the Waterfront Park parking lot.
