Held every year in June during National Gay Pride Month, the LGBT Pride Parade and Festival brings more than 25,000 participators to Philadelphia for a march down Broad Street.

This year’s parade begins at 13th and Locust and ends at Penn’s Landing where a huge festival will follow.

The Parade

The parade will leave from the heart of the Gayborhood at 13th and Locust streets. From there, the parade will wind through Midtown Village and Old City — past a judge’s stand at 6th and Market streets — to the concluding festival grounds at Penn’s Landing.

Along the route, paraders will stop and perform for audiences — and judges.

The Festival

At the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, guests will find areas for dancing, all-ages fun, vendors and much more.

Other Events

Leading up to the festival, an entire weekend of fun awaits. On Friday, June 16, a Pride kickoff party will go down from 6-10 p.m. at 12th and Locust streets. Here, find food, drinks and various entertainment as well as discounted wristbands for Sunday’s main festival event. Tickets can be purchased for $10, a $5 savings versus purchasing a festival ticket before entering at Penn’s Landing.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, June 17, William Way will host its annual Homecoming Brunch, featuring live entertainment, a buffet brunch, Bloody Mary’s and mimosas, along with a silent auction.
