Music has always played an integral part in our lives, shaping each generation throughout the decades. Music helps us celebrate and heal in good times and in bad.

There are many famous songs that have shaped the LGBTQ+ community that we identify with as our gay anthems. For example, songs such as “Somewhere over the Rainbow,” “I am what I am,” and “Same Love”. These powerful songs have defined many of our cultures’ movements from Stonewall to modern-day Prides!

New Hope Celebrates presents this music with a live outdoor concert at our annual Pride Fair this year. Our outdoor stage will be set at New St. and South Main St. at the south entrance to New Hope in the American Legion Parking lot, ushering in the Pride season!

We are proud to present yet another great year of amazing musical entertainment from local and nationally known performers.

Pride Park can be accessed in three locations.

  1. From Canal Park on 145 South Main St. next to Moo Burger
  2. From South Main St. {By the Boomer statue}
  3. From 40 New St. – Access at American Legion Lot
