Registration for MarketFest is now open, a virtual space where vendors can engage and promote their small businesses like never before.

About this Event


MarketFest is NYC Pride’s NEW virtual space where vendors can engage with consumers and promote their small businesses like never before. Fundamentally functioning as a directory, MarketFest is the safe and accepting platform for LGBTQIA+ owned and operated merchants to gain more digital brand exposure.

The directory includes the following categories to cover a wide range of small businesses:

  • Arts & Design
  • Beauty
  • Fashion
  • Home & Living
  • Lifestyle
  • Restaurants & Bars
  • Services
  • Wellness & Health

Conceived by the volunteers who bring you PrideFest each year as an alternative to the in-person experience held annually in June, MarketFest hosts information about small businesses, opportunities for the community to engage with your organization through blog posts & social media, along with additional resources on donating to LGBTQIA+ organizations.

Whatever your vibe, we’re sure you can find something special at MarketFest!


Check out a preview of MarketFest HERE to see how your LGBTQIA+ owned & operated business can be featured in this virtual space.
