Rainbow Garden

Niagara Pride is working with Power City Eatery in Niagara Falls, NY to create a Rainbow Garden. The garden is a way to show the diversity of Niagara County and how the LGBTQ+ community is integrated in the rich tapestry that is Niagara County.

If you’d like to get involved with the maintenance of the garden, please contact info@niagarapride.org.

Rainbow Garden – Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Location: Power City Eatery (PCE)
444 Third St, Niagara Falls, NY 14301

Niagara Pride is thrilled to announce that there will be an LGBTQ+ Rainbow Garden in Niagara Falls, NY. The garden space will serve as a way of honoring all the LGBTQ+ individuals and families throughout Niagara County, NY and be a reminder that the LGBTQ+ community is another integral thread in the rich and diverse tapestry that is the Niagara County.

The unveiling ceremony will be an opportunity to meet representatives from Niagara Pride and Power City Eatery. We encourage folks to stop by the garden and take pictures and/or selfies. We also encourage visitors to go to Old Falls Street, which will be decorated in rainbow banners, to check out the “Let’s Fall in Love Mural” and stay for the illumination of Niagara Falls in the Rainbow Pride colors that evening starting at 9pm. The Falls will be lit up 3 times that evening for 15 minutes at a time at 9pm, 10pm, and 11pm. June 28 marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the events scheduled for this day pay tribute to the birth of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.

Power City Eatery has donated the use of their garden space for this project.
