“This annual celebration is a wonderful opportunity to highlight East Boston’s history, while also providing an opportunity to give back to our community,” says Liana LaMattina, current Chair of the Eastie Pride Day committee. “It is the one day each year that the community is able to come together in support of the vendors, organizations, and even friends and families that are always eager to support the neighbors in need.”

This year’s event will mark the 34th Annual Eastie Pride Day in East Boston. The event originated with Founder Sal LaMattina in 1989 to increase pride within residents in the community, and has since become a staple event in the neighborhood that kids and adults alike look forward to each year.
