The Pink Party in San Francisco’s Castro district Saturday, June 27 will run from 3 to 8 p.m., organizers announced today (Thursday, May 7).

People involved with the festival, formerly known as Pink Saturday, have said for months that they planned to start and end the party earlier this year in an effort to reduce violence at the party, which had for years run much later. Last year’s event went from 5 to 10:30 p.m.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which owns the Pink Saturday name and had coordinated the event for decades, announced in February that they wouldn’t produce this year’s festival. In April, the Sisters announced they’d voted not to allow the current planners, who include the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, not to use the Pink Saturday name. The Sisters plan to revamp their event at a different site for 2016. The center recently announced the Pink Party moniker.

The Bay Area Reporter will have more on the Pink Party in the Thursday, May 14 edition.
