PRIDEFEST In The Park
Saturday, June 17, 2023
1p.m. to 4 p.m.
Northport Village Park
The centerpiece event is Pridefest in the Park, a “pre-tea” afternoon music festival, with a brief program, and vendors located harborside at the foot of Main Street. Pridefest in the Park is presented on Saturday, June 17 from 1pm to
4 pm. Attendees are encouraged to enjoy the music, stroll among the vendor tents, picnic in the park, explore Northport’s many specialty shops, galleries, antique stores, restaurants, wine stores, brewery, the museum or enjoy a matinee or evening performance of “Sound of Music” at the Engeman Theater. Some locations will host “tea” starting at 4 p.m., and the Northport Historical Society Museum has a special Pride exhibit.
The month-long celebration kicks off with a ceremonial Pride flag-raising at Village Hall, hosted by Mayor Donna Koch, on Thursday, June 1 at 12 noon. The Pride flag will fly over Village Hall and the Police Headquarters throughout June.
Northport Pridefest is presented by the Incorporated Village of Northport. It is produced by the Schramm Marketing Group with the support of a corps of local volunteers, and the promotional support of local media, and the Northport Farmer’s Market. Northport Pridefest is one of the series of Long Island Pride Downtown Events, in partnership with the LGBT Network.

Northport Historical Society Presents: PRIDE!
Curated and Designed by Marketing & Membership Coordinator John N. Daniello, PRIDE! explores the history of the LGBT+ movement in the United States and Northport.
