Show Your Pride -- Picnic with us!

We're proud to host the 2nd annual Princeton Community Pride Picnic in our courtyard. Celebrate Princeton’s LGBTQIA+ community with tunes spun by DJ Mona of Mon Amie Events NYC, a bubble show by OMG Bubbles, hula hoop along with Color Me Hoopy, join in yoga, make your mark on a collaborative community mural, go home with fun giveaways and lots more!
