Seattle Pride Parade
“Generations of Pride”
Sunday, June 29
Kicks off at Fourth Avenue & Union Street
Join us for the 40th annual Seattle Pride Parade, held at 11:00am, June 29 on 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. The 2014 theme is Generations of Pride, and it will honor those who fought the early battles and those continuing to advocate for equality in changing times.
Celebrity Grand Marshal George Takei will join a plethora of local and regional GLBTAQ advocates and champions for the parade, and pioneering band Lavender Country, considered the first out and proud LGBTQ country band, will contribute their sounds to the music of today.
The parade should take about 2.5 hours, and it will end at Second Avenue and Denny Way near Seattle Center. Viewers are encouraged to watch the parade from the sidewalks, leaving the street open for the parade. Pride volunteers will be stationed throughout the route and at the intersection of Denny Way and Second Avenue to assure the safe and orderly flow of parade participants out the area. Pedestrian crossing at Denny Way will be restricted to the east side of Fourth Avenue.
The Parade announcers' booth and media viewing area will be located at Westlake Park on Fourth Avenue between Pike and Pine streets. ADA viewing areas are available at Westlake Plaza and on the east side of Fourth Avenue and Bell Streets. ASL interpreters will be available at both the Westlake Park Announcer Stage and at the Fourth and Bell Street announcer stage.
