The 2022 Seattle Pride Parade is back in-person this June! The parade takes place on Sunday, June 26 starting at 11am downtown. The Seattle Pride Parade is the largest parade in WA with 500,000 parade-goers and 200 participating groups.
There’s nothing like experiencing Pride up-close at the parade. Pick out your most vibrant outfit, gather your friends, and prepare to show up hydrated and ready to dance. The registration period for marching in the parade has ended, but you can still register to march as a frontline worker or save a seat in the grandstands. Keep reading for all the relevant info!
If you are a frontline worker, Seattle Pride wants to honor you! Frontline workers are invited to register to march as Community Grand Marshals at the front of the Seattle Pride Parade. There is no fee for frontline workers to participate in the parade. They simply have to register online by Friday, June 10. The goal is to uplift and thank frontline workers for all of their hard work during the past two years.
What if you’re not a frontline worker or part of an organization but still want a close-up experience of the 2022 Seattle Pride Parade? You may not be able to walk in the parade, but you can still have plenty of fun on the sidelines. One option is to simply show up on the day of the parade and hope to find a good spot somewhere.
A better plan, however, is to buy tickets ahead of time for seating in the grandstands near Westlake Park and Bell Street. Tickets for this seating starts at $35. There is free ADA Priority Seating is available at all three stages and a 50% ticket discount for BIPOC attendees (use the promo code “FamilyReunion”). Find more information about saving your seat for the Parade here.
So whether you plan to walk in the parade with your organization, participate as an honored frontline worker, or reserve a seat, be sure to make your plans ASAP! Will we see you there?
