Parade moving to October for 2021
PRIDE PARADE TO BE HELD
SUNDAY OCTOBER 3, 2021!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
May 26, 2021: PRIDEChicago is announcing a new date for the 2021 Chicago Pride Parade:
Sunday, October 3, 2021
The Parade will begin at 12 Noon.
The Parade route will remain the same as past years:
Beginning at Montrose and Broadway and then moving south on Broadway to Halsted and continuing south on Halsted to Belmont where it turns east to Broadway and then south on Broadway to Diversey where it again turns east on Diversey to the end point at Cannon Drive.
We anticipate that everything else will remain the same as in past years
Please understand that this is a ONE TIME change in the date for the Pride Parade. This was made necessary by COVID-19 and concerns for the safety of participants and onlookers were a parade to take place in June of this year.
Next year the Pride Parade will take place on Sunday, June 26, 2022.
This year’s parade takes place at the beginning of LGBTQ History Month. We will be celebrating our part in that history and encourage everyone to explore our LGBTQ history and see how we reached where we are today and the LGBTQ people from the past who helped to make it happen.
We also encourage everyone to celebrate June Pride Month. Take part in Pride Month events whether in person or virtual.
We will be sending out Pride Parade applications mid to late June.
We look forward to a Happy Pride Month and, for this year, a Happy Pride Parade at the start of LGBTQ History Month.
Times are better, but still be safe.
2021 Pride Parade Coordinator
