“Future of Pride”
Kicks off at 4th & Union
Join us for the 42nd annual Seattle Pride Parade, held at 11:00 AM, June 26 along 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. The 2016 theme is The Future of Pride, and it serves to honor all who will continue the fight for equality!
The parade will last about 2.5 hours, ending at Second Avenue and Denny Way near Seattle Center. Viewers are encouraged to watch the parade from the sidewalks, leaving the street open for the parade. Pride volunteers will be stationed throughout the route and at the intersection of Denny Way and Second Avenue to assure the safe and orderly flow of parade participants throughout the area. Pedestrian crossing at Denny Way will be restricted to the east side of Fourth Avenue.
The Parade announcers’ booth and media viewing area will be located at Westlake Park on Fourth Avenue between Pike and Pine streets. ADA viewing areas are available at Westlake Plaza and on the east side of Fourth Avenue and Bell Streets. ASL interpreters will be available at both the Westlake Park Announcer Stage and at the Fourth and Bell Street announcer stage.
No parking will be permitted in any area along the parade route and all vehicles must be registered, display an Event Pass and have a driver in the vehicle at all times. Unattended vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.
If you’re over 21 and food and drink are on your mind, head to any of Pride’s three beer gardens where you can enjoy a beer or cocktail and some of Seattle’s famous food truck dining. Open from 9:30 AM through the end of the parade, beer gardens are located along 4th Avenue at Pine Street (Westlake Park), Bell Street, and Clay Street. Valid ID is required.
