THE RALLY – June 26
The first NYC Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969, when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square Park and followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NEW YORK CITY Pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city. In 2013, the opening of the official Pride events were held on Hudson River Park’s Pier 26.

PRIDE FEST – JUNE 28
PrideFest, which will be going into its 22nd year in 2015, is the annual LGBT street fair that combines vendors, entertainers and activities for a day of fun and celebration in the name of equality. PrideFest attracts thousands of out-of-state visitors and brings them together with local residents and families, corporate sponsors, community leaders and area business owners.
PrideFest is the perfect place to stop to listen to a few tunes, grab a bite to eat or score some great Pride gear. And the best part is, attendance is totally FREE!
THE MARCH – JUNE 28
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2014, we were joined by over 325 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of non-profits, community organizations, corporate sponsors, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 55 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.
