Get ready for St Pete Pride’s 20th Year! To honor our history, celebrate our community, and create an accessible, safe place for members of the LGBTQ+ community, St Pete Pride will be hosting the largest Pride festival to date.  The return of our headline event, the June 25th Parade will take place in the downtown waterfront parks.  This is a free event and open to the public. The Parade route will run from Vinoy Park to Albert Whittard Park along Bayshore Drive.

Our Parade Festival will begin at 2 pm on both sides of the parade route! Join us in North Straub park for a variety of local vendors, food trucks, DJs, and the beer garden!  South Straub park will be a 21+ space with a DJ, food and bars, and vendors.  This is the space for you during the day to enjoy a drink, some space, and watch the parade travel by. At night South Straub will be transformed into women and non-binary pop-up nightclub from 7-10 pm. Entertainment lineup to be announced.  Across the way in Spa Beach will be another opportunity to enjoy Parade Day.  Vendors, food trucks, and beverage stations will line Spa Beach leading up to the main entertainment stage.  Entertainment will run from 2:00-3:45 pm.  At 4 pm the Parade will step off, don’t want to be in the crowd but do want to watch the Parade? Join us on Spa Beach for a live stream of the Parade to the main stage screen.  Watch on your blanket for a more laid-back experience.  Main stage entertainment will resume at the end of the parade until 10 pm.

Important information for this year's Parade. Once you decide on a spot for the Parade there will be limited options to move across Bayshore Dr.  Short breaks will be programmed into the parade route approximately every 30 minutes after step-off to allow traffic on and off the Pier.  If you are planning to enjoy the Parade from the Pier side please plan accordingly.  Other options for exit require walking to either end of the Parade route to cross the street.  Similarly if you decide to enjoy the Parade from the Straub Park sides you will only be able to access the Pier during the breaks or after the Parade ends.  If you’d like to watch the main stage entertainment, please plan accordingly!

Parking downtown during Pride events will be extremely limited.  Parking garages will be open.  St Pete Pride encourages you to carpool, rideshare, bike, and use public transit.  PSTA will have a fare free weekend June 25-26 and will be running park n rides to the Parade on June 25th.  Please visit and for updated route information.
