Held every year in June during Nation 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, the festival location and one of the best gay pride spots in the country, featuring special events, drinks, food and more.

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 5th and Market streets — to the 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, family-friendly fun, vendors and much more.
