Destinations: Two Pride Parades in Seattle this weekend

Monday, June 24, 2019

June is designated as Pride Month because the Pride movement started with the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, New York in June of 1969. (Wikipedia article)

The biggest local events are this weekend, at the end of the month, with a festival on Capitol Hill and a parade in downtown Seattle.

Capitol Hill PrideFest begins at noon on Saturday, June 29, 2019 with events lasting until 9pm.

The biggest festival day on Capitol Hill all year long! Return to the place where Pride was held for decades, now a 5-block festival with food, vendors, 5 stages of entertainment, and the most diverse crowd you’ll see all year long. Best of all, it’s free.

500 E Pike, Seattle. Drive to the University Stadium light rail station and go to the Capitol Hill station and you'll be right in the middle of the festivities. Don't even think about driving. Capitol Hill is one of Seattle's most congested neighborhoods, even without 50,000 partygoers!

The 45th annual Seattle Pride Parade begins at 11am Sunday, June 30, 2019 and will go along 4th Avenue from Westlake Park to the Seattle Center. The parade is approximately four hours long.

Light rail is your best bet to get to this downtown Seattle event. There is a Westlake station that will put you right at the starting point of the parade.
