PrideFest

Critics' pick

RECOMMENDED: Full coverage of Gay Pride Hudson St between Abingdon Sq Park and W 14th St. Subway: A, C, E to 14th St; L to Eighth Ave. You know those street fairs that pop up around the city whenever the weather is nice? The ones everyone pretends to hate, but secretly can't resist walking into? Pridefest is one of those—but way gayer! What does that mean, exactly? Probably that there will be a lot of cruising going on, so be mindful of what you imply as you devour your corn-on-a-stick, or dive into a hot MozzArepa. Just kidding! This is a family affair. In addition to enjoying the usual street-fair fare—tube socks, hilarious T-shirts, the aforementioned greasy treats—you can pick up information about public health, collect swag from corporate sponsors, and mingle with a crowd full of Pride revelers and shell-shocked Village residents. After things wrap up here, you can work off some of that cheese at the Dance on the Pier.

All NYC Street fairs have become nothing but crapfests. Every one has the same garbage, and that's all it is. They have zero to do with the neighborhood that hosts them and clog up the streets with unnecessary junk. Why would you want to go to one of these junkfests? I'm grateful for this list so I know what places to avoid on any given summer weekend in NYC!

Most of the fairs are the same, so content is pretty much what you would expect. Things being sold, food, drinks and crowds. No surprise there!

This is a great list but a bit of detail about what is actually HAPPENING at each festival would be good... the websites aren't much help.
