COVID-19 UPDATE: Pride in the Park Festival


Latest updates regarding South Jersey Gay Pride's 12th Annual Festival

Thank you for being a part of the South Jersey Gay Pride family. 2019 and 2020 have been extremely challenging for everyone. Thus, we appreciate your continued support.

In light of current challenging conditions and in the best interest of public safety, we are postponing our Sunday, September 13, 2020 12th Annual Festival at Cooper River Park.

This decision is not one that we take lightly, and one that has been made in order to preserve the safety of our community.

The length of our postponement is unclear at this time, but we are hopeful that it will only last a short while. Basically, that timing will be based upon unruly circumstances that we are hopeful will work in our favor sooner than later.

We are working harder than ever to serve you and celebrate the LGBTQ+ Pride, and supporting our amazing local businesses. Although this process has been more painful to endure than we initially thought, we will get through this.

If you are a vendor or applied to become a vendor, we will contact you no later than August 31, 2020 to advise how we may continue to work together. If you do not receive a response by September 1, 2020, please send us a support request.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves,your family, your communities,and even your pets.

If you are able, please consider supporting Jersey by:
  • Making a $5.00 donation to our Community Outreach and Support Fund via PayPal or CashApp $JerseyGayPride
  • Take the Jersey Gay Pride pledge against bullying and becoming a member of our Activists and Advocates Committee. Click here to get started.
We will continue to communicate with you on our efforts throughout this lapse, and we look forward to sharing positive news of our 2021 celebration.

Warmest Regards,
DeAnn M. Cox
Founder & CEO South Jersey Gay Pride
