Where to Park for the LGBT Pride Parade and Festival

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Philadelphia has some pretty colorful names for places. Think about it: We have Fishtown, The Schuylkill River, and Queens Village just to start. But when someone mentions the Gayborhood, you know exactly where that is: home to some of the best food, drinks and shopping Philadelphia has to offer. Now we probably have you thinking about the next time you should get your Green Eggs fix or a chocolate budino from Barbuzzo, right?

Let’s Get Right Into It:

On Sunday, June 18, the Gayborhood will expand to celebrate love in all forms, shapes and sizes with one of the city’s hottest annual events as Philly Pride hosts the 28th Annual LGBT Pride Parade and Festival!

The parade kicks off at 13th and Locust Streets at 11:30 a.m. with 25,000 participants parading down Market Street. Judges will do what they do best at 5th and Market street as elaborate and colorful floats serenade passersby. The festivities will continue all the way down to Penn’s Landing until 1 p.m.

Now Let’s Get You Parked:

If you plan on heading to the parade, you’ll have three convenient parking options along the parade route. Check out the options below and see what works best for you.
