The Staten Island Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Center is proud to sponsor the Fifth Annual Staten Island Pride Parade and Festival on Saturday, June 6th, 2009.
The route of this year’s parade, grander and more expansive than ever, has been finalized.
It will step off from Central Avenue, St. George at 12:00 noon and will culminate with an indoor festival that will begin at 1:00 PM, and continue until 5:00 PM at Cromwell Recreation Center, Pier 6 at the foot of Hannah St., in the Tompkinsville area of Staten Island (one block east of the intersection of Bay St. & Victory Blvd., accessible by the S46, S48, S51, S61, S62, S66, S74, S76 & S78 buses and the SIRT - Tompkinsville Station, or a short walk from the Staten Island Ferry terminal).
Food, music, entertainment, community resource / information tables, vendor merchandise and a variety of recreational activities will be available throughout the afternoon for all to enjoy.
We are inviting your group/organization or business to participate in the event by walking in the parade and/or setting up a resource table at the festival.
There are no participation fees, but a suggested donation of $50.00 (more if you can, less if you can’t) for tabling is requested from businesses. Advance registration is required.
