Today we introduce you to Ryan, our Venue and Entertainment Committee Chair of Lancaster PA Pride! Ryan Gabriel Davis is an events coordinator, music promoter and creative visionary from Lancaster, Pennsylvania as well as owner and company founder of Animal House Productions. He can usually be found in one of two places: a forest or a concert. Ryan’s ethos is founded in the living arts, community engagement, energy, and creative expression.


Ryan strives to work with artists in the queer community, women, people of color and other marginalized groups and bringing them to stages in Central Pennsylvania. His pursuit is to make those populations feel welcome, at home, present, heard, and know that their participation is vital and valued. He believes music and art engage the communities to come together, collaborate and co-exist in spaces with the goals and intent of drawing diverse crowds and fostering connections between attendees, artists, and community. He encourages and aims to form more creative, positive, colorful, open-minded atmospheres through the power of music and art because he believes that performance, dance, and art can heal you.

We're so excited to have Ryan on board! - Lancaster, PA Pride

Indie pop-rock duo Girlpool will perform at Binns Park this year as part of Lancaster PA Pride Fest.

Lancaster Pride will be 12-6 p.m. June 19. Tickets to the all-ages festival are $5. Other entertainment includes Kate Faust, The Ok-Ok's and drag performances. The entertainment lineup is presented in partnership with Animal House Productions.

The event's co-chair, Zac Nesbitt, announced in March that the festival would move to Binns Park this year. Lancaster PA Pride Fest was previously held at Buchanan Park since 2008. 

Girlpool was founded in Los Angeles but relocated to Philadelphia to be part of the city's vibrant DIY music scene. The band was listed as one of "20 all-female bands to watch" by Billboard magazine in 2015. 

Girlpool released its debut LP "Before the World Was Big" in June 2015.
