Pridefest & Pride Island are set to go ahead in 2021. The parade will be virtual.
The pride march is the centerpiece of NYC pride with its colorful floats, music, and community groups.
The starting point of the pride march is in the heart of Chelsea, at 16th Street and Seventh Avenue; from there, the March heads south on Seventh Avenue toward Christopher Street, veering east through the Village and over on Eighth Street, before turning north on Fifth Avenue, where it concludes at 29th Street.
Pride Island has a new home. This year, the second annual Pride Island (formerly known as the Dance on the Pier) will move uptown to a new location in Hell’s Kitchen—Pier 97, at 57th Street and the West Side Highway. It will have the same great Hudson River views, the same electric DJs and the same dancing all afternoon and into the night as before.
Sunday sees Pride fest which is the annual LGBT street fair, held on Hudson St. between Abingdon Sq & West 14th St and starts at 11am till 7pm. There are several other parties like the Pride Island and the rooftop VIP party.
The major parties and celebrations take place over one big weekend, from Friday, ): the main events are the Rally (the earliest of the events, taking place on Friday); and PRIDEfest, The March, and the Dance on the Pier all taking place on Sunday. The events mostly take place in the West Village, very close to the city’s other gay-popular neighborhoods like Chelsea and the East Village.
