Celebrating The First-Ever Pride Event In Northport, New York
Beyond the Frame
The Village of Northport hosted its first-ever Pridefest In The Park in June 2023, welcoming LGBTQIA+ community members and their allies to celebrate Pride.
The event, presented by the Incorporated Village of Northport and produced by Schramm Marketing Group, could not have been possible without the support of countless volunteers. The Driven Media team was thrilled to help with the production and coverage of this monumental event.
Our team was a proud sponsor of this event and helped promote awareness of the celebration. On the day of the event, Driven team members also tabled and managed two different raffles meant to engage attendees.
Our production staff was on site, too, taking photographs and recording video footage of the first-ever Pride event in Northport. Hundreds of people attended to show their support for the queer community– enjoying a historic ceremonial Pride flag-raising at Village Hall, an afternoon music festival, picnics in the park, various vendors, and numerous local boutiques and shops. Finally, the Driven team had the privilege of interviewing community members about what Pride means to them.
Combined with the rest of the celebration’s sponsors and volunteers, our efforts worked to raise awareness of issues facing the LGBTQIA+ community and celebrate unity, inclusion, and opportunity for everyone in the Village of Northport.
