New Hope Celebrates is proud to welcome its newest partner — the Clarion Inn & Suites of New Hope, located at 6426 Lower York Road. Clarion will be the official event and accommodation partner for Pridefest on May 17–19.

Clarion is open seven days a week, 365 days a year. Discounted Pride weekend packages are available and include free admission for guests to New Hope Celebrates-sponsored events.

The Clarion Inn & Suites underwent a complete overhaul, now offering 138 new rooms and full suites with all amenities one would expect from a well-appointed hotel.

The Bonfire Bar & Grill will be open, serving cocktails and a special comfort food menu. The New Artist Room, dubbed the “Pride Lounge” will host live entertainment.

Bob Egan & Friends will perform Saturday night from 6 to 9 p.m., with co-host Lou Ruvolo for an open mic night. The dance party from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. will feature cocktails, DJ Mikey Mo from New York City, and other fun surprises. On Sunday, Liz DuFour will play the piano from 3 to 7 p.m., and the famous NHC Pride Sunday Funday Pool Party will take place from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. with DJ Kirk.

Advance tickets are $10 online. Cost at the door is $15. Clarion guests receive free admission. All door proceeds benefit New Hope Celebrates Pridefest. Rain or shine.
