The North Jersey Pride Festival was built with family in mind, so we have tons of stuff for kids to do! This year, we'll have a live interactive stage with shows every hour on the hour (see below!), plus inflatable slides and obstacle courses ($5 all-day wristbands) and lots of games and activities (free!). All our Main Stage talent is PG-rated, so you don't have to worry about littles in the area. Just come ready to have fun!

12pm: Arts & Crafts with RAD Family

Parents from our RAD Family program for transgender and gender-nonbinary children will lead a craft with all the kids.


2pm: Premier Martial Arts Workshop 

Let your child learn some awesome moves (or at least get out the ya-yas!) with the Martial Arts Workshop of Maplewood.


4pm: "Fire & Ice" with Mad Science

Spectacular show of thrilling and impressive science experiments, complete with foggy dry ice storms and mind-boggling vanishing paper.


1pm: Magic with Prof. Harry Hocus

KIds (and grownups!) will be astounded by Prof. Harry's sleight-of-hand and he might just be pulling a few furry creatures out of a hat...
