New Hope Pennsylvania Events
The LGBTQ celebrations in the Philadelphia area are gathering pace with the return of New Hope from May 11-19. This year's theme is "Come as You Are" and will celebrate the 1969 Stonewall events and WorldPride in New York City, which took place throughout June.
When the procession ends, guests can gather at the New Hope Festival Square for a large open-air festival that will take place on the grounds from 11 to 19 May. Step out to the parades and join the other revellers as they finish up with a mass in New Hope. When the parade ends and the festival begins, you can join in the celebrations on the streets.
Cross the river to Lambertville, where a day of entertainment will take place at the Musikbergtheater on January 18, 2020. The nine-day festival will also be held for the 25th time in the history of New Hope, on Saturday, January 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is live music, food trucks, vendors and of course live entertainment from local bands.
Guests can enjoy a fresh, seasonal menu and taste creative delicacies; local bars and restaurants offer specialties; and couples can create their own cocktails together. Crossing's boutique vino selection will work as a set list for the caterer, paired with a variety of local wines and spirits, as well as wine and beer from local breweries. The party will be followed by a toast to the coming weekend, with live music, food trucks, vendors and live entertainment at Musikbergtheater on January 18, 2020.
