2018 North Jersey Pride Festival

Memorial Park Amphitheater
161 Dunnell Road
Maplewood, N.J.

North Jersey Pride is back! After a one-year hiatus to join up with the 2017 National LGBTQ March on Washington, we’re planning our biggest celebration ever—and we need YOU to make it happen.

North Jersey Pride is a wonderful, family-friendly event that brings together thousands of LGBTQ community members and straight allies from all over the Garden State to celebrate diversity and promote equality. Attendance has increased an astonishing 400% year-over-year since our inaugural event! 
Admission is free to this all-day community celebration, thanks to the generosity of our corporate and individual sponsors. Enjoy a live stage showcasing incredible talent, 100+ merchant vendors, and our famous five-star food court, featuring outstanding fare from local culinary artisans. Come with a blanket or some beach chairs and spread out on the lawn. Your kids will be off enjoying the huge Rainbow Kids Zone, with a live kids stage, so you can watch the show in peace. Best of all, learn more about the wonderful LGBTQ and ally nonprofits that are doing important work in the community.

Be a Sponsor. Put your company’s logo front and center on our stage banners and advertise your support of LGBTQ equality to 5,000+ attendees! Most sponsorship includes festival exhibit space, Pride Guide ad, click-through logos, and more! Check out the 2018 sponsorship rates and send us an email with your questions or commitment. 

Be a Vendor. Display your merchandise with a 10 x 10 exhibitor space in the Vendor Court. Our attendees love to shop, so take advantage of this opportunity to be out and proud as a pro-LGBTQ business. The Vendor Court sells out every year, so reserve your space ASAP!

Be an Advertiser. The annual North Jersey Pride Guide is much more than a program of events. Filled with timely news articles about legislative and social issues critical to the LGBTQ community, it is also must-read journalism. The Pride Guide is distributed free of charge at all North Jersey Pride Month events; at the North Jersey Pride Festival (est. 5,000+ LGBTQ and ally attendees); at retail locations in Essex, Union, Hudson, Bergen and Morris counties; and will reach another 10,000+ online via Flipbook technology.
Download the 2018 rate card and reserve an ad for your LGBTQ-friendly business today!

Be a Volunteer. As you can imagine, all this fun takes a whole lot of effort and we need new volunteers to join our team. So whether you’ve enjoyed our festivals in the past and want to get involved or you’re new to the area and want to meet likeminded people or you’re just looking for a way to give back, PLEASE JOIN OUR TEAM. We need volunteers, not only on the day, but in the planning stages and for key leadership positions. Contact volunteer(at)northjerseypride.org.
