New York City, known for its vibrant diversity and rich cultural history, hosts one of the world's largest expressions of freedom and diversity: the NYC PrideFest. The event begins on June 25 at 11 a.m. in New York’s Greenwich Village and PLNT Burger is joining the important celebration of diversity, unity, and acceptance. 

PrideFest began in 1993 and has brought crowds of 300,000 annually in a normal year, while its peak attendance was 600,00 in 2019. Going into its 29th year, the event brings back its annual LGBTQIA+ street fair that brings together exhibitors, entertainers, leaders in the community, business owners, incredible talent, food, games, and entertainment. 

PLNT Burger strives to celebrate all the beauty of life through the most delicious, plant-based, sustainable food on the planet. One of PLNT Burger’s core missions is to bring joy to the world. We feel there’s no greater joy than celebrating being your true, authentic self. We’re more than just a plant-based fast-casual restaurant, we are advocates for change, pioneers of progress, and we feel strongly about our commitment to a world where love and acceptance know no bounds.
