Spokane Pride Parade

When: Sat., June 14, 12-5:30 p.m. 2014

Packed with comedy, film, and music, the 23rd Annual Spokane Pride Celebration, hosted by OutSpokane, has been building excitement all week for its main event — the Pride Parade, themed "Out, Loud & Proud." What began as a sidewalk march has transformed into a parade of banners, bicycles, cars and floats bringing together more than 5,000 people each year to express their support for the LGBTQA community through vibrant displays. Rainbows and creativity are encouraged. Post-parade celebrations can be found at the Rainbow Festival at Gondola Meadows in Riverfront Park until 5:30 pm, with the official Pride afterparty kicking off at 7 pm at nYne Bar & Bistro.
