This weekend, there are two chances to celebrate Pride month in New York City, with annual events in Harlem and Manhattan. On Saturday June 23rd, celebrate Harlem Pride in West Harlem, a new location for an annual event that recently outgrew Jackie Robinson Park. Harlem Pride Celebration Day will be held on 12th Avenue between West 135th and West 138th Streets, with an all new layout, allowing for more music, and sponsors, community tables, food vendors, activities, and of course, more attendees. Things get started at 12 and go until 6pm.
On Sunday, June 24, PrideFest is New York City’s annual LGBT street fair that combines vendors, entertainers and activities for a day of fun and celebration in the name of equality. PrideFest attracts thousands of out-of-state visitors and brings them together with local residents and families, corporate sponsors, community leaders, and local business owners. PrideFest is the perfect place to stop to listen to a few tunes, grab a bite to eat, or score Pride gear. And of course, attendance is totally free! Things kick off at noon on Hudson Street between 14th St. and Abingdon Sq.
