Parade Line-up

The organizers of the Annual Chicago Pride Parade releases the parade line-up, which includes colorful floats, decorated vehicles, marching bands and walking contingents representing community businesses, organizations, elected governmental officials and individuals.

The parade theme this year is "Stonewall 50:  "MILLIONS of MOMENTS of PRIDE."

The parade is scheduled for Sunday, June 30, 2019 at noon stepping off from Broadway and Montrose in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood. The parade will then travel south on Broadway; then south on Halsted; then east on Belmont; then south on Broadway; then east on Diversey to Cannon Drive. Crowd estimates last year topped nearly one million people.

The parade is the culmination of June Pride Month and is organized by PRIDEChicago under the direction of parade coordinator Richard Pfeiffer.
