The 4th Annual Portsmouth PRIDE is a day full of celebration, reflection, and community-building. Here’s what we’ve got planned:
PRIDE Marketplace. The PRIDE Marketplace returns- and will feature booths from local non-profit organizations and family-friendly vendors. We will also have several local restaurants serving up some of the best casual eats on the Seacoast. The PRIDE Marketplace will be open at Strawbery Banke from 1:00pm until 5:00pm on Saturday, June 23rd. We are at capacity for Marketplace vendors for 2018! Thank you – See you at PRIDE!
PRIDE March. Marchers will convene at the Portsmouth Public Library between Noon and 1:00PM to organize into color groups. Beginning at 1:15PM, we will march together in rainbow formation through downtown Portsmouth, arriving at Strawbery Banke (destination for the remainder of the PRIDE Program) at approximately 1:45PM. Want to march? Register here!
PRIDE Entertainment Program. Details TBA!
Out & About. Portsmouth has a vibrant downtown business community of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and attractions. On PRIDE Day (and in many cases- beyond!), our amazing local business supporters will be offering various specials, discounts, and giveaways for PRIDE attendees.
