New Hope Celebrates commemorates every October to acknowledge National LGBTQ+ History Month and National Coming Out Day on the 11th.
On Oct. 11, New Hope Celebrates will reveal “Inside + Out” with a special reception from 6 to 8 p.m. at Stella by Jose Garces at the Ghost Light Inn, in the Riverview Terrace located on the promenade level. The event is free. Due to space limitations, registration is required.
When visitors first arrive at the exhibit, they will be able to open each door, revealing its contents. Display panels will feature people, places, events and photos from NHC’s archives. It’s an excellent way to discover and share New Hope’s LGBTQ+ and Allied experience and the events that shaped them.
NHC’s history exhibit is a community-driven project funded with a grant from Visit Bucks County and generous donations from annual sponsors, including Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce, Niece Lumber, New Hope Remodeling and Impact Signs of New Hope. Stella at the Ghost Light Inn and the Bucks County Playhouse are co-sponsoring the outdoor exhibit.
New Hope Celebrates will also host a special LGBTQ+ Night Out, featuring a live performance of the Rocky Horror Show with a pre-show cocktail reception at the Mansion Inn on Thursday, Oct. 24.
