Countdown to Jersey Pride 2023
PrideFest - a family-friendly event celebrating the LGBTQ+ Community

2023 LGBTQ+ Pride

Sunday, June 4th
Noon-7pm, rain or shine

New Jersey’s 31st Annual Statewide LGBTQ+ Pride Celebration will be held in-person on Sunday, June 4th 2023. As always, we have been working closely with the host city of Asbury Park to ensure the safety of all participants. It is the largest, and oldest, LGBTQ Pride Celebration in the garden state, with attendance under normal circumstances surpassing 20,000.

The Parade

Sunday, June 4th

The parade, passing through the center of host city and shore destination Asbury Park, has grown throughout the years. Floats, decorated vehicles, marching bands, and enthusiastic marchers are cheered on by spectators that line the parade route

The Rally

Against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, and New Jersey’s famous boardwalk, national headliners and local artists share the rally stage for a six hour outdoor concert.

The Festival

The Pride Festival provides an opportunity for community groups and businesses to distribute a wide variety of information, including job opportunities, housing options, family issues, disease prevention and screening, sources of support for victims of violence and abuse, legal rights and services, and the availability of support for issues that the queer community faces. This family (and pet) friendly event also features NJ’s largest outdoor display of the Names Project’s AIDS Memorial Quilt, rides in our Family Zone, and an array of eating options at our food court.
