North Jersey Pride Festival 2018

  • Maplewood Memorial Park 161 Dunnell Road Maplewood, NJ, 07040 United States (map)

North Jersey Pride is back! After a one-year hiatus to join up with the 2017 National LGBTQ March on Washington, we’re planning our biggest celebration ever!

North Jersey Pride is a wonderful, family-friendly event that brings together thousands of LGBTQ community members and straight allies from all over the Garden State to celebrate diversity and promote equality. Attendance has increased an astonishing 400% year-over-year since our inaugural event! 

Admission is free to this all-day community celebration, thanks to the generosity of our corporate and individual sponsors. Enjoy a live stage showcasing incredible talent, 80+ vendors, and our famous five-star food court, featuring outstanding fare from local culinary artisans. Come with a blanket or some beach chairs and spread out on the lawn. Your kids will be off enjoying the huge Rainbow Kids Zone, with a live kids stage, so you can watch the show in peace. Best of all, learn more about the wonderful LGBTQ and ally nonprofits that are doing important work in the community. 

It’s going to be a beautiful day!
