PRIDE 2022!

Please share!

Pride month is rapidly approaching, and we’re so excited for our second annual Pride event in Yorktown— and this year it will be bigger and better! Celebrate Pride with us all day long on Saturday June 11, 2022. All are welcome! 

MARCH AT 1PM

We will be gathering at the Yorktown Town Hall at 363 Underhill Ave Yorktown Heights, NY for a march to kick off the day. Pride began as a protest and in that spirit, we march! Bring a sign and a friend and be ready for step off at 1pm sharp.

CELEBRATE AT 3PM

After the march, head over to the Yorktown United Methodist Church at 2300 Crompond Rd Yorktown Heights, NY on 202, across from the police station, for our festival! If you need a ride from the march, let an organizer know (you’ll be able to spot us!) and we’ll get you there.  Join us from 3-6pm to enjoy performances, speakers, vendors, small businesses, information, food trucks, activities for the kids, and more! MCed by local sensations Angel Elektra and Shay D’Pines, who will also be performing! If you would like to perform or table at the event, please fill out this brief google form: https://forms.gle/PTka49ymBbL9Q9zk8

Thank you to our generous host, United Methodist church of Yorktown, and especially Pastor Matthew Querns.
