WE ARE ROARING BACK
JUST LIKE THE 1920s
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN BEING A VENDOR AT THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL. WE ARE CURRENTLY AT CAPACITY AND NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.
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 Jersey City 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 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 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. Due to the smaller footprint of the festival vendor spots will be limited to approximately 35-40 this year. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Applications must be submitted by August 1st, 2021 for consideration.
