Parade & Festival
Sunday, September 14th 12-5pm
The Pride Parade is a beloved institution here in Vermont and throughout the world. It began as a anniversary celebration of the Stonewall Riots but has evolved over time to encompass the many LGBT heroes, struggles, and victories since. Pride Parades are held at different times in different places. Ours will occur on Sunday, September 14th at 12:30. It begins at the south end of Church St. and ends at Battery Park where the festival is held! Marching in the parade is fun, easy, and inexpensive.
The Pride Festival is one big party. Its tone has evolved over the years, and today the festival is a place for the entire community – LGBT and ally – of all ages, races, and backgrounds. Tents are set up for children, youth, activities (including an ecumenical religious service), and vendors*. Food is available, as well as entertainment, games, and the best people-watching in Burlington. Don’t miss it! Please make sure to visit Northern Decadence!
Register to march in the parade, table at the festival, or BOTH! Fees for marching and tabling are being revisited – please check back with us shortly! Email email@example.com with any questions or to let us know you are interested.*Vendor is a catch-all term we use to refer to anyone tabling at the Pride Festival. These are people, businesses, or groups who have sponsored Pride Vermont with $125 or more and have requested a table. They do not necessarily have to be selling something, but if you are selling you will have additional forms to complete for the City of Burlington and an additional fee.
