2017 Parade Map

Each year, tens of thousands of people come to PrideFest and the Grand Pride Parade in St. Louis. This year, the Arch will once again provide the backdrop for the parade on Market Street, and the parade will run along the face of the festival. The Pride Parade has served as a method for legislators and candidates to illustrate their support of the LGBT community and the causes we support. The parade also serves as a means to showcase the creative talents and service hundreds of LGBT-friendly businesses, non-profit organizations, and community groups, as they spread their message to all who attend.

The 2018 parade will occur on June 24th, 2018.
