Roxbury's Pride is about Kindness

What: Roxbury Pride Day is a day dedicated to inclusivity in Roxbury Township, NJ.

When: Saturday, June 3rd from 10am-1pm

Where: First Presbyterian Church and Roxbury Public Library lawn (indoors in the event of rain)
Parking: Parking will be available on Main Street, and the Meeker St Lincoln-Roosevelt & Franklin lots. The library lot will be extremely limited that day so please plan to park on Main or Meeker St.

Why: Pride is about kindness. It's about love and acceptance of others regardless of ethnicity, ability, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Those are the themes of Roxbury's Pride Day which are more important than ever considering the correlation that lack of kindness, love and acceptance can have on the bullying experienced by young people and those in all walks of life.

Roxbury's Pride Day was born out of a desire to show that hate has no home in Roxbury, and that all of us deserve kindness....that we all deserve to feel pride in who we are.

How: A joyous, family-friendly morning full of
--rainbows
--face-painting
--giveaways
--free food
--arts & crafts
--DJ entertainment
--lawn games
--cupcake decorating
--Pride flag raising ceremony
--and so much more!!!!
