Rainbows on the Hudson Pride Parade | Saturday, June 29 | 3–3:30pm | Pier 16 | $15–$50

Enrich your Pride celebration at the Seaport Museum by joining the LGBTQ+ sailing club Knickerbocker Sailing Association’s (KSA) annual floating Pride parade.

Two of the Museum’s National Register-listed historic vessels will join over 30 boats for the sail, which means you can join part of the parade on the 1885 schooner Pioneer or the 1930 tugboat W.O. Decker. The fleet of 30+ vessels will feature a colorful array of sails and flags, some even designed by Gilbert Baker, the creator of the first pride flag who was also a member of KSA.

Advance registration is required. Capacity is limited; claim your space before each sail is full! seaportmuseum.org/pride

Prefer to enjoy the parade from shore? No problem! Between 3pm and 3:30pm, the procession of ships is expected to sail past the Seaport Museum’s Pier 16, where anyone can enjoy the site and cheer them on.
