Parade Information

The Portland Pride Parade will be held June 16, 2019, and steps off at 11am. The parade forms in the North Park Blocks (check-in and vehicles by 8:30, last call at 10:30). The parade route travels through Northwest Portland and along SW Naito Parkway to end at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, Portland, Oregon. Approximately 8,000 LGBTQ+ and allies walk in the parade, and as many as 45,000 spectators line the 1.1 mile route. The parade is limited to about 150 entries with groups as large as 150-200—though most groups are much smaller. In past years, the parade has sold out quickly. We encourage you to register early if you want to be in the parade as space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Over 50 volunteers are needed to help with the parade. If you would like to help us, please complete the Volunteer Application.

Email if you have further questions.

The Terms and Conditions of the parade (and festival) are subject to change at any time, and without notice.
