New England’s only Illuminated night Pride parade is one of the highlights to the Pride celebration with a dazzling display of floats, performing artists, marching groups, businesses and spectators that wind through downtown Providence. The main reviewing area will be on Weybosset street under the historic marquee of the Providence Performing Arts Center. The parade begins on Dorrance Street then down Washington Street, left on Empire street and ends on Weybosset Street. There will be a new ADA accessible viewing area at the corner of Weybosset and Empire Street. The energy in the city is electric and we send an open invitation to everyone to participate in the weekend events that transform the City of Providence into a vibrantly visible LGBTQIA+ city.
