This family friendly event celebrates the diversity of our community and puts Cumberland County on the map as an inclusive, safe and respectful community. During the 2016 annual pride flag raising ceremony in Amherst, the mayor challenged the community to host our first pride parade in 2017.

This year the Town of Amherst will kick off Pride Celebrations with the annual flag raising event on Wednesday May 24 at 4pm in front of the YMCA of Cumberland County, and our parade will take place the following week on Saturday June 3rd at 2pm.
