North Adams Pride Night

  • Friday, June 24, 6–10pm
  • Free for all
  • Courtyard A

In 2021, what started as a small initiative by local businesses transformed into a grand celebration of bright colors and electrifying music with hundreds of supporters. Now North Adams Pride Night returns for its second year, with featured entertainer Boxxa Vine joined by special guests and local drag queens Vuronika Baked and Jackie Leggs.

Join the celebrations hosted in MASS MoCA’s Courtyard A where we’ll be pouring cocktails, Bright Ideas Brewing will be open for craft beer drafts (which must be consumed on brewery property), Chingon Taco Truck will be serving up a special menu, and the brand new restaurant Door Prize will be open for business near the museum entrance.

Pride Month, celebrated every June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall riots, aims to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for LGBTQ Americans. As The North Adams Pride Committee notes, “Pride Month is more than just hanging inclusive flags, it’s about bringing the North Adams community and businesses together for a new tradition…to shine a light on the LGBTQIA groups in the region.”

North Adams Pride Night is organized by The North Adams Pride Committee, which is comprised of Bear and Bee Bookstore owner Rye Howard, North Adams Chamber of Commerce Business Development team members Nico Dery and Makayla-Courtney McGeeney, and entrepreneur Andrew Fitch.

This event is made possible by MASS MoCA, North Adams Chamber of Commerce, Berkshire Stonewall Community Coalition, Bright Ideas Brewing, Bear & Bee Bookstore, Common Folk Artist Collective, Savvy Hive, Terra Vintage, Chingón Taco Truck, Door Prize, Full Well Farm, and The Plant Connector.
