FREE ADMISSION – ALL ARE WELCOME
Union County PRIDE is an inclusive and affirming celebration of
family, equality, diversity and empowering acceptance.
“Union County PRIDE brings families in the diverse LGBTQ community together with all families who value inclusion and acceptance,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “This annual celebration is our signature event for demonstrating that our community is one of equal rights and respect for all families.”
Union County PRIDE 2019 will include a full schedule of entertainment
and free activities including:
PRIDE-themed arts and crafts featuring custom button making, design “Love Makes A Family” posters for your family, PRIDE bracelets and more
family lawn games including bean bag toss, giant jenga and mega blocks for the littlest PRIDE celebrators
inflatable bounce houses
playground fun, and many other family activities.
An Equality Rally featuring New Jersey’s own Drag Queen Harmonica Sunbeam as emcee will kick off at 2:30 p.m. with special guest speakers and performances.
Throughout the event, LGBTQ advocacy and ally organizations will be on site with information and educational materials, as well as support and networking resources.
“Pride events make a difference,” said Freeholder Rebecca Williams, liaison to the Union County LGBTQ Ad Hoc Committee. “In addition to celebrating diversity, they raise awareness of existing inequalities and provide a platform to support legislation and civic action. I am very proud of my colleagues on the Freeholder Board for inaugurating Union County’s first PRIDE event in 2017, and continuing to support it every year.”
