What You Need To Know
After careful consideration and thorough exploration of alternatives with the city of St Petersburg, the Board of St Pete Pride has made the difficult decision to cancel all large in-person events originally scheduled for June 22 – 28, 2020. This includes the 2020 Pride Parade. For more information, please read our full COVID-19 statement.
About the Parade
Imagine 5,000 people swishing and sauntering along Downtown St Pete’s Bayshore Dr in a dazzling array of sequins, beads, leathers and feathers to celebrate the power and beauty of diversity, with more than 200,000 people cheering them on. This year promises to continue to show the state all the beautiful colors of our diverse community and be a fabulous opportunity for unbridled self-expression and love.
No outside beverages or alcohol may be brought to the Parade. Water and other beverages will be sold throughout the festival. In the interest of general safety, please refrain from bringing in the following to the Parade:
- Alcohol (open container laws and city ordinances still apply)
- Inline Skates
- Laser pointers
- Pets or animals (we love animals, but for their safety, leave them at home)
There will be an accessible viewing area for the parade located at the South Straub Park next to the Water Fountain. Interpreting services of the Parade will take place by the HCA South Straub Stage.
