The West Hartford Pride Planning Committee along with sponsors Town of West Hartford, Blue Back Square, and BeMindfulWeb.com are pleased to announce the second annual West Hartford Pride celebration!

This event is free and open to the public.

West Hartford Pride will be a hybrid event, taking place both online and in person with events throughout the month of June. This year’s event will kick off on June 1 at 8:30 a.m. with a Pride flag raising at Unity Green in West Hartford Center. Bookending the month-long celebration will be a day-long community wide event on Isham Street in Blue Back Square on Saturday, June 26, highlighting the multifaceted contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community along with the diverse businesses and cultural venues the town has to offer.

More than a party, WeHa Pride celebrates talent across the spectrum of arts, culture, music, and performance. The whole family is welcome to take part in all Pride events. Inclusivity is a priority for the West Hartford Planning Committee and its sponsors.

West Hartford Pride welcomes people from across the spectrum of age, gender identity, race, sexuality, ability and class. This promises to be an event where everyone can see a piece of themselves celebrated and reflected back at them.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at multiple levels. Contact [email protected]org for more information.
