Queen City Pride :: Summer Community Picnic

Start your day at the Hudson Valley PRIDE March and Festival in New Paltz – and end the day with the summer’s biggest, gayest, and most fabulous BYO picnic & dance party at LOCUST GROVE. Back for its 9th year, The Queen City Pride picnic starts at 5pm and now is the time to start planning for the most fabulous picnic of the summer!

BYO Picnic
Ready your favorite blankets and pack up your basket for the most fabulous picnic of the summer. Creativity, uniqueness, noms and tastiness are all encouraged as you set up the ultimate al fresco spread. As always this event is 100% BYO. We will not have a bar or food vendors set up on site, so be sure to pack everything you’d like to enjoy. Alcoholic beverages are permitted (and encouraged) for those 21 and over. Small, tabletop propane barbecues and sterno warmers are permitted, otherwise no open flames, please.

This year some special guest judges will be giving out prizes for Best Picnicscape (i.e. your fabulous picnic spread) in the following categories:
>> Best Food & Drink Display
>> Best Queen-Inspired Theme
>> Best Use of a Picnic Blanket

The entire family is invited to join, please just keep any dogs on leashes and be a considerate neighbor and clean up after your pet.

Activites, Drag Show + Dance Party
More details will be announced as we get closer to Pride season.

Cover for the Queen City Pride Picnic is $10 person (kids under 14 are free).
