Northfield’s second annual Pride in the Park will be celebrated on Saturday June 4, 2022 from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM at Central Park. The event will be emceed by Sven Sundgaard and Robby McEachren. The entertainment line up starts with a Drag Story Hour with Old Man Zimmer and Sid Sity, followed by Pride Cardio with the Northfield YMCA. Then Representative Angie Craig will take to the stage to give a few remarks. Then the stage will be warmed up for the open runway with Mrs. Moxie, where all are welcome to strut their stuff onstage! More entertainment and activities are still to be determined. 

In Northfield, the Cannon River, adjacent to downtown and near the park, has a riverwalk you can stroll, catch the breeze, pick up some soft-serve or a smoothie from The Blast. Tanzenwald Brewing Company features an all-gender restroom and two lovely patios. You can also stop at the charming LGBTQ-friendly independent Content Books and Toy store or the Bearded Mermaid a LGBTQ-friendly vintage store with primarily masculine-presenting clothing. There are also two LGBTQ-friendly coffee shops, Little Joy Coffee and The HideAway Coffeehouse and Wine Bar. The HideAway is offering 10% off your bill to Pride-goers who present a flier available at Pride in the Park. 

Northfield’s Pride in the Park is hosted by the Northfield Public Library and has huge support from the community with participants including many local businesses and organizations. Stop by and say hello to folks from local schools, churches, youth and art organizations as well as Plush Pup, Tandem Bagels, and Homebody MN, a trans-owned candle business.
