Disability Unite Festival
Returns July 17th

Celebrate Disability Pride at Disability Unite Festival 2022! Come together with friends and family virtually on this website, or in-person at the Central Park Naumburg Bandshell in New York City to celebrate community, and commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

For virtual participants, the Disability Unite Festival will be livestreamed and continue to be offered on this website with all access accommodations for those unable to travel or not located in NYC.

A group of multi-ethnic men and women stand together. Four of them hold signs reading from left to right, &quotChange comes from you and me" and " Be a hero for a better world" and &quotLet's build communities together &quotand " Our families our rock". Other people walk in the background in front of a stone building.
