New Hope Celebrates

An estimated 15,000 visitors will visit New Hope for the 2016 Pride festivities as the New Hope LGBTA community strives to create a society free of prejudice, discrimination and hate, within our community, and across our borders.

Colorful bands, floats, and specialty troupes alongside local organizations of service, politics, youth, schools and Churches will fill the streets in New Hope’s Annual Pride Parade, happening Saturday, May 21st 2016.
