Waryas Park

Waryas Park, Main St., Poughkeepsie, 12601

The summer’s biggest, and most fabulous BYO picnic is back better than every! Hudson Valley Pride Picnic starts at 12pm and now is the time to start planning for the most fabulous picnic of the summer!

Waryas Park is walking distance from the Poughkeepsie Train Station and the Walkway Over the Hudson. The park is ADA accessible.

Suggested donation is $5. No one turned away for lack of funds!

Ready your favorite blankets and pack up your basket for the most fabulous picnic of the summer. Waryas Park has barbecue grills for all you master chefs. As always, this event is 100% BYO. We will not have a bar or food vendors set up on site, so be sure to pack everything you’d like to enjoy for the ultimate al fresco event.

We’ll have games (and maybe even a tournament) for those of you looking to have some river-side fun! For the younguns, we’ll have a drag queen story hour led by Pinky Socrates.

This year some special guest judges will be giving out prizes for Best Picnicscape (i.e. your fabulous picnic spread) in the following categories:

>> Best Food & Drink Display
>> Best Pride-Inspired Theme
>> Best Use of a Picnic Blanket

The entire family is invited to join, please just keep any dogs on leashes and be a considerate neighbor and clean up after your pet.
