We're back! Pridefest - May 20th - 22nd Parade, Saturday 21st

2019 was our best Pride Parade yet it signals the beginning of our summer season and is the highlight of our Pridefest Weekend, taking place the third weekend in May every year. A community event proudly produced by New Hope Celebrates and it’s annual partners!

Both local and national organizations “strut their stuff” through town, showing their enthusiasm, and enjoying the fun! The parade personifies our diversity and the invitation is open to all. Featuring nationally known marching bands, troops and floats, political organizations, youth groups, schools, companies, and churches.

An estimated 15,000 visitors will pass through Lambertville and New Hope, for the week-long event, staying at our inns, hotels, and Bed & Breakfasts.

2019 had a record 7,500 attendees and almost 900 Parade Marchers. After the parade over 2,500 people came out to enjoy the festivities at the Pride Fair in Pride Park. So whether you are a returning guest or coming for the first time, it is a magical experience like no other!
