The Rally

Date and Time

Friday, June 24th, 2016

7 p.m. — 10 p.m.

Be a part of history as we kick off NYC Pride.

The first NYC Pride Rally occurred one month after the Stonewall Riots in June 1969, when 500 people gathered for a “Gay Power” demonstration in Washington Square Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. NYC Pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city. In 2013, we marked the opening of our official Pride events on Hudson River Park’s Pier 26.

General Admission is FREE and available for all! No tickets required.

VIP Passes include:

  • One meal ticket from one of several gourmet food trucks on-site
