A Celebration of Newark's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Community!


Newark Pride is a regionally anticipated event that celebrates Newark's dynamic LGBTQ community. Each year Newark Pride provides an array of exciting and memorable programming that attracts over 5,000 people into the heart of New Jersey's largest city.

Newark Pride Week 2015 will feature arts and cultural events and a range of entertainment for adults, families and youth. Newark Pride has a social capital and economic development impact: it increases awareness of exciting attractions in Newark and surrounding areas while increasing local business revenue. Newark Pride brings significant attention to Downtown Newark successes; such as the Prudential Center and the Newark Museum.
