“A Lifetime of Pride”
Sunday, June 28
Kicks off at Fourth Avenue & Union Street
Join us for the 41st annual Seattle Pride Parade, held at 11:00am, June 28 along 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. The 2015 theme is A Lifetime of Pride, and it serves to honor all those who serve the community — regardless of age, class, sex, ability, or status. Pride exists in us all — for a lifetime
Grand Marshals The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Joan and The Wildrose owners Martha Manning and Shelley Brothers will join local and regional LGBTQA advocates and champions for the parade.
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.
9:30 a.m. through end of the parade
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. Beer gardens are located along Fourth Avenue at Pine Street (Westlake Park), Bell Street, and Denny Way. Valid ID is required.
Show up early at Westlake Park to catch the Seattle Pride Parade Pre-Show hosted by the fabulous Mama Tits!
