The month of pride brings colorful events across the five boroughs for the entire month of June.

The parade is set for June 30 at the intersections of Fifth Avenue and 26th Street, marching down to Eighth Street. See the entire event calendar here.
May through September
Kids’ concerts, yoga, sun gazing, silent disco and live music are planned for the month of June on the green space of Riverside Park (from 59th to 153rd Street along the Hudson River). All events are free and open to the public! Check out the event calendar to see what’s going on in June.
May 31 to Sept. 3
