Parade & Festival: Sunday, June 3, 2018
Queens Pride, the organizer of the 2018 Pride Parade and Festival held in Jackson Heights, Queens, NY, welcomes you to celebrate the 26th parade and festival. First held in 1993, the fight for social justice and the celebration of community continues with this wonderful display of visibility and pride. Our theme for 2018 will be announced in the Spring.
Over the years the parade and festival have grown and evolved to where today, we help to connect people within the community to various equality, social justice, health and educational organizations. With this outreach, the benefits are immeasurable in the many ways people have been helped to be themselves and live better lives.
We depend on your support, our fantastic volunteers and the dedicated members of Queens Pride who spend many hours to organize this event, and more, each year.
All registered marchers will qualify for a QUEENIE AWARD!
We hope to see you at our events in 2018!
