Out! Raleigh is a huge, inclusive block party that raises funds for the LGBT Center of Raleigh. There's a KidsZone for families, assorted food vendors, a beer garden, and entertainment. Indeed, since Out! Raleigh started in 2011, it has become a fixture in Raleigh's festival scene, drawing 30,000 attendees in 2017. It's fun, yes, but there's an opportunity to support social issues, too: Out! Raleigh's mission is to promote diversity awareness and inclusiveness for LGBT folks and their allies in the Triangle and beyond.
