Don’t miss the 49th annual Seattle Pride Parade this June!
Every June, all of Seattle gets together throughout the month to celebrate Pride events. On Sunday, June 25 the celebrations will culminate in the Seattle Pride Parade. This is the largest parade in Washington, with 500,000 parade-goers and 200 participating groups. This year’s theme is Galactic Love!
Read on for all the details!
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 volunteer or buy a ticket for a seat in the grandstands.
If you’d like to watch the parade while seated in the front row, you can buy tickets ahead of time for grandstand seating in the bleachers near Westlake Park and Bell Street. Tickets for this seating start at $40 and won’t be available day-of.
There is free ADA Priority Seating available at all three stages; you simply need to reserve yours online. There is also a 50% grandstand seating discount for BIPOC attendees (use the promo code “STARDUST”). The organizers offer this discount as a “way of working to address the historical and ongoing damage to the Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.”
Seating opens at 9:45 a.m. for both grandstand and ADA priority seating. There will be a pre-show with live performances and DJs at Westlake Park downtown starting at 10:00 a.m.
There will be three featured locations for this year’s parade:
- Westlake Park will have a stage, ADA and grandstand seating, food trucks, and an alcohol garden.
- 4th & Lenora will have a stage, ADA and grandstand seating, food trucks, and an alcohol garden.
- 4th & Denny Way will have a stage.
On a budget this summer? You can watch the Seattle Pride Parade from the sidelines for free. The grandstand seating is nice, but not required to attend.
