First family Pride picnic in Huntington, kids yoga in the park and a Chamber meet and greet mixer


Cape Horn Lighthouse by Karen Celella, whose fine art photographs are currently on display at Daniel Gale in Northport Village.

THIS SUNDAY

First Annual Huntington Family Pride Picnic
Mill Dam Park, Huntington
Saturday, June 26, 1-4pm
The First Annual Family Pride Picnic in Huntington will take place this Sunday, at Mill Dam Park. The family-friendly community gathering celebrates LGBTQ+ pride in Huntington harbor with friends, food and music. Pack a picnic. There will be an ice cream truck on site. “For many years, Huntington was the home of Long Island LGBTQ+ pride. That designation was sadly taken away a number of years ago. Huntington Family Pride is bringing LGBTQ+ pride back to Huntington with the first annual Huntington Family Pride Picnic,” said event organizers Eric and Jim Rubin-Perez. “With the support of UUFH [Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Huntington], Huntington Family Pride has planned this event to show our youth that Huntington is an affirming and supportive community. We welcome you to pack a picnic and celebrate LGBTQ+ pride at the harbor with friends, fun and music.”

Poets in Port with Julian Matthews
Friday, June 24, 7:30pm
Only on ZOOM
Presented by the Northport Arts Coalition, this month’s “Poet in Port” is Julian Matthews, who will join participants on Zoom all the way from Kuala Lumpur. Julian stumbled onto poetry by accident five years ago when he blundered into a writing workshop. That happy accident has turned into a rabid compulsion and he is still extricating himself from the crash. Welcome to his recovery. Julian won the Editor's Prize from Nine Cloud Journal Issue 2 for his poem “The Well.” He is published in The American Journal of Poetry, Autumn Sky Poetry Daily, Beltway Poetry Quarterly, Borderless Journal, The New Verse News, and Lothlorien Poetry Journal among other literary publications. Tickets are free and available here.
