Pride Picnic

The Fourth Annual Princeton Community Pride Picnic will be May 31, 4:30-7:30 p.m. We will gather on Hinds Plaza on “Pride Eve” to enjoy music, fun, food and more. In case of rain, we will move inside the library and picnic among the book stacks. After the picnic ends, the festivities continue with the Pride Dance Party starting at 7:30 across the street at the Arts Council of Princeton.

About the Event

MISSION: To create a welcoming, safe and fun gathering space where multigenerational LGBTQIA+ individuals, our families (given/chosen) and allies celebrate and commemorate the LGBTQIA+ community and its pride; and where we can connect and share resources. 

VISION: An informal, friendly and fun kickoff to Pride Month in Princeton, inclusive of people of all ages in, and allied with, the area’s LGBTQIA+ community. We will come together to party, eat, dance, play, meet new people and share information and resources in a joyful space where all belong.
