BRING A NONPERISHABLE FOOD ITEM TO PRIDE
Jersey Pride is excited to announce that it has partnered with Fulfill – the foodbank of Ocean and Monmouth Counties – to harness the generosity of our community and help stock the food bank’s shelves. Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to reduce our admission fee this year from $15 to $10 per person and ask that you consider paying that forward by bringing a contribution to the food bank. We will be collecting your food bank donations at all the gates and at the parade’s staging area.

Attendees are welcome to being their own food in coolers. There are also great food vendors present if you’d prefer to purchase food at the festival. No alcoholic beverages may be brought into the festival grounds. Coolers and backpacks are subject to search at the gates.

No alcohol of any kind may be brought into or removed from the festival areas. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at the festival. Please drink responsibly.

Paid (metered) parking is available throughout Asbury Park. Be sure to read the signs as some non-metered spaces may require a residential permit. Metered spaces may be paid for using the AsburyParking app or ParkMobile. Other payments methods may be available – check the meters or signage where you park.
