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.
Leading up to the blockbuster main event festival at Penn’s Landing is the parade. It leaves from the heart of the Gayborhood (Locust Street between 12th and 13th streets) and from there, winds 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 parade culminates at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, where guests will find areas for dancing, all-ages fun, vendors and much more. Food trucks and cold beverages will be available for purchase, too.
Leading up to the Sunday festival, an entire weekend of fun awaits.
On the Friday evening beforehand, a Pride kickoff party goes down at 12th and Locust streets.
Here, guests can find food, drinks and various entertainment as well as discounted wristbands for the Sunday’s main festival event.
