NJ Disability Pride IN THE PARK
COME AS YOU ARE: New Jersey Disability Pride in the Park (formerly NJ Disability Pride Parade) has a new look and a new venue! Come and celebrate with us at this first-time festival that will take place at the Alvin P. Williams Park in Sewaren Peninsula, Woodbridge Township (Middlesex County), New Jersey on Friday, May 29th 2020 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The 2020 NJDPP, a grassroots effort hosted by the Alliance Center for Independence (ACI), will also commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) in a beautiful new and expanded venue, a 36-acre accessible park in the heart of Middlesex County that features an amphitheater, picnic areas, paved paths, gardens and playgrounds along the waterfront of the Arthur Kill, with plenty of parking for festival attendees!
ACI has proudly hosted and organized the New Jersey Disability Pride Parade and Celebration since 2011. #NJDPP is the one event in New Jersey where the disability community comes together for a day to celebrate pride in each other and to appreciate our differences and similarities!
NJDPP features an awesome lineup of speakers, entertainers, singers, dancers, musicians and comedians! We also have activities for the kids, prizes, giveaways and more!
