Frenchtown is proud to be a diverse and inclusive community that welcomes ALL people! Join us for the Second Annual Frenchtown PRIDE celebration in May, where we gather in support of our beautiful and bold LGBTQ brothers and sisters. We encourage all residents and visitors who support equality to come out and make this event even better in its second year!! A family friendly day of Love and Acceptance expressed OUT loud - all are welcome!
Please consider joining our Events committee to help plan Pride this year, as we aim to grow in conjunction with New Hope Celebrates. We are looking for volunteers, planners, helping hands, connected community members, artists and anyone who has ideas and wants to help!
