The Official Pride Parade is always held on the Sunday of festival and is the highlight of PrideFest weekend for many parade attendees and festival goers. This year, the parade takes place on Sunday, June 30th at 11 a.m.
Each year, thousands of people descend upon Pride St. Louis to view the second largest parade in the City of St. Louis. This year, the Arch will provide the backdrop for the parade on Market Street, and the parade will run along the face of the festival.
The Pride Parade has served as a vehicle for legislators and candidates to illustrate their support of the LGBT community and the causes we support.
The parade also serves as a means to showcase the creative talents of hundreds of businesses, non-profit organizations and community groups and spread their message to all who attend.
