Pride Parade

Presented by Marriott Rewards

Save the Date: 2017 Capital Pride Parade, Saturday, June 10

Join tens of thousands of people to watch the Capital Pride Parade presented by Marriott Rewards in the Nation’s Capital and one of Washington, DC’s, favorite parades! The Parade travels 1.5 miles through Dupont Circle and 17th Street and ends in the Logan Circle neighborhood. The Parade will include more than 180 contingents–floats, vehicles, walkers, entertainment–consisting of local businesses, Capital Pride Heroes and Engendered Spirit awardees, politicians, community groups, drag queens, dogs, and much more.

The annual Pride Parade stepped off on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 4:30 pm from 22nd & P Streets, NW, Washington, DC. The Pride Parade travels 1.5 miles through Dupont Circle and 17th Street, passes by the Logan Circle neighborhood and ends along the revitalized 14th Street corridor at S Street.

The review stand is located at 15th and P Streets, NW; another announcement stand is just east of Dupont Circle on New Hampshire Avenue. A sign language interpreter will be available at the 15th and P Streets review stand.

Grand Marshal Leslie Jordan

  • Leslie Jordan is one of the most consistently recognizable faces in popular entertainment. From his Emmy-winning role on “Will & Grace,” to recent stints on “American Horror Story,” Leslie remains an in-demand mainstay as a Stage / TV / Film performer, voice-over artist, fund raiser, spokesperson, out artist, and equal rights activist. We’re proud to announce Leslie as a Grand Marshal for 2016!
  • Mr. Jordan is also scheduled to attend the “Crack of Noon” Pride Brunch at 12:00 noon earlier that day. Brunch tickets sell out quickly and are now on sale.
