The 20th Annual Jersey City LGBTQ+ Festival
The 20th Anniversary Jersey City LGBTQ+ Pride Festival is 21 consecutive years strong celebrating the diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, queer, intersex, and asexual communities and allies of Hudson County and the New York City Metropolitan area. Previous years the official estimate of attendance at the festival was 20,000 people.
The LGBTQ+ Pride Festival is recognized not only as a premier LGBTQ+ event in Hudson County, but also one of the largest pride festivals in the Northeast. The events of Pride season exemplify the strength and growth of our LGBTQ+ and allied community. More importantly, Jersey City Pride emphasizes the importance of diversity in our community, making it stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to our society
This year in we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary with a month-long celebration throughout Jersey City leading up to our Pride Festival celebration on August 21st. The festival will return to Newark Avenue this year for a live in-person event with a smaller footprint than our 2019 festival. We’ll be between Grove Street and Erie Street in the heart of historic downtown Jersey City as well as the Grove Street PATH Plaza. The festival is adjacent to major mass transportation: PATH Grove Street (two stops from Manhattan) and Bus.
