Ypsilanti Proud (formerly Ypsilanti P.R.I.D.E Day)


Mark your calendar for the 22nd Annual Ypsilanti P.R.I.D.E. Day, now called Ypsilanti Proud, on May 20, 2017. Ypsilanti Proud is a community-wide event intended to foster community pride and encourage local business growth by creating a clean and welcoming environment. It began as a class project by the 1995 graduating class of Leadership Ypsilanti, an experiential learning program sponsored by the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Regional Chamber, and is now sponsored by the A2Y Chamber Foundation.

500-1200 volunteers spend the morning picking up litter, painting, planting flowers and otherwise beautifying the Ypsilanti community. After the clean-up, volunteers are treated to lunch at the Post-Event Picnic. The 2017 location for the picnic will be Prospect Park.
