Mass Audubon, the largest nature-based conservation organization in New England, is hosting more than a dozen Pride Month events across the state, starting with the free Pride Festival at Magazine Beach Park Nature Center, in Cambridge, on June 1.

The festival at Magazine Beach takes place from 12–5 pm with activities including a DJ, food trucks, face-painting, glitter tattoos, lawn games, a live animal presentation, and a family-friendly, nature-inspired drag show featuring some of the Boston area’s stars of drag! Registration is not required, and the event is free.
