About The Jersey City LGBTQ+ Pride Festival
The 21st Anniversary Jersey City LGBTQ+ Pride Festival is 22 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 21st Anniversary with a month-long celebration throughout Jersey City leading up to our Pride Festival celebration on August 27th. The festival will return to Newark Avenue this year for a live in-person event with a larger footprint than our 2021 festival. We’ll be on Newark Ave between Grove Street and Jersey Ave 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.
