4th Avenue of Downtown Seattle
Come see the 45th annual Seattle Pride Parade, held at 11:00 AM, June 30th along 4th Avenue in Downtown Seattle.
The parade will last about 4 hours, ending 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 throughout 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.
No parking will be permitted in any area along the parade route and all vehicles must be registered, display an Event Pass and have a driver in the vehicle at all times. Unattended vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.
The parade includes more than 200 participating groups and 60,000 individuals marching in support of LGBTQ pride. This year the parade will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, which became a national movement and eventually led to marches around the country, including the first Seattle Pride march in 1974 – which has been held in late June ever since to commemorate the June 28th Stonewall Riots. The 2019 Seattle Pride Parade Grand Marshals include Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, drag performer/actor/singer/comedian Jinkx Monsoon, as well as four organizations – Bailey-Boushay House, Camp Ten Trees, Seattle Children’s Gender Clinic and U.T.O.P.I.A Seattle.
