Hudson Pride Connections Center will host the 11th Annual Hudson Pride Festival and Parade on Sunday, October 9th, 2011 from 11am – 7pm. The day begins with a parade route beginning at City Hall on Grove Street. The parade will lead the crowds to the festival at One Exchange Place, On the Waterfront, in Downtown Jersey City, NJ 07302 with the backdrop of the NYC Skyline. The Festival is a few footsteps away from most major mass transportation: PATH(Exchange Place Station), Light Rail, and Bus (one stop from Manhattan WTC PATH Station).
Our 11th Annual Hudson Pride Festival and Parade will celebrate the diversity of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities in Hudson County and throughout the New York metropolitan area. Attended annually by more than 10,000 people, Hudson Pride Festival is recognized not only as the premier LGBT event in Hudson County, but also one of the largest festivals in the Northern NJ region. The events of Pride season exemplify the strength and growth of our LGBT community. More importantly, Hudson Pride emphasized the importance of diversity in our community, making it stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to our society. We invite you to be a supporting business or organization at this year’s Hudson Pride Festival and Parade.
