RECAP: The Candle Studio Pours with Pride at Akron Pride 2019


The city of Akron came together on Saturday August 24th to celebrate the area’s LGBTQ community, diversity, and inclusiveness. The crowd at Hardesty Park was estimated by fire department and law enforcement officials to made of more than 20,000 people, all there for one cause: Akron Pride Festival 2019.

Attendees filled the park with a rainbow of colors, smiles, and celebration. There was music, dancing, and even candle making! The Candle Studio was one of many vendors at the festival, offering a mobile pour bar for guests to remember the day in a unique way.

Some stopped by The Candle Studio’s booth to pour their own custom soy candle, while others couldn’t pass up the limited edition Akron Pride Festival 2019 scents and labels. Festival go-ers laughed over the candle names and scent combinations while taking a sniff of each pre-poured custom candle before deciding which one to take home.


The Akron Pride 2019 candle line up consisted of 4 uniquely curated scents:

  • ‘Tutti-Frutti’ (goji berry, lemongrass, yuzu)

  • ‘Daddy’ (old books, leather, mahogany)

  • ‘I Kissed A Girl’ (jasmine, patchouli, sunflower)

  • ‘All American Guy’ (amber musk, straight razor, mug & brush).
