Watch the Ben Franklin Bridge light up with the colors of the rainbow in honor of Philadelphia’s Pride Parade and Festival, June 12.
The day starts with a parade through Midtown Village, known to the community as the “Gayborhood”, ending with a celebration at Penn’s Landing.
The parade will start at 13th and Locust, winding its way through the neighborhood, and making stops at Independence Hall and Front and Market Streets. Once the parade reaches Penn’s Landing attendees will have access to more than 90 national and community organizations, 120 food, drink and merchant vendors, and six hours of live entertainment!
A Dance Zone will be featured this year along with health, sports, pet and family areas to keep you engaged and active throughout the entire festival. Grand Marshals include Congressman Bob Brady, Executive Director of The Attic Youth Center Carrie Jacobs, and the Philadelphia Gay News who will be announcing the parade’s major headliner whose identity is kept secret until days before the event.
To watch and cheer on the parade is free; admission to the festival at Penn’s Landing is $10.
