Pride Night Out at The Museum

In partnership with OUT Montclair join us for a night of fun musical programming to celebrate Montclair Pride Week! This event will celebrate queer artists, musicians, DJs, dancers... and our guests!

If you are interested, attend the optional VIP fundraiser reception with artist Kyle Meyer. The blowout party afterward is free for everyone to attend. Proceeds from the reception will benefit OUT Montclair and the Museum.

Free First Thursdays at MAM are a once-a-month party at the Museum made possible by the generous support of TD Bank! Enjoy free general admission, activities, food trucks, a cash bar, and so much more! 

Please note: we are asking that attendees reserve free tickets  so we can keep an eye on capacity.

  • Create a work of art reflecting what PRIDE means to them, and how we can support one another in each of our quests for pride in self.
