Parade Information

This year’s festivities will include a parade in the Grand Central  District on Saturday, October 17 from 11 a.m. to noon. The parade will  begin at approximately 20th Street and head west on Central Avenue  (Although details may change). A custom rainbow flag, one city block in  length, will be unfurled along the route.

“The St. Pete LGBTQ+ Community passionately shows an abundance of  PRIDE year-round. They’ve expressed their desire to have a daytime  parade during a cooler month on Central Avenue. This provides the  perfect opportunity to celebrate National Coming OUT Day in October.  We’re so grateful for our community’s support and sponsorship which  makes it possible for us to do this for them,” states COSP Board of  Directors.

The parade will be followed by the Come Out St. Pete Festival — on  Central Avenue between 22nd and 31st Streets — where local small  businesses, artists and makers will be selling their goods and services.  Many of the businesses in the district will be providing live  entertainment and special performances during and after the market.  Parade entries and vendor pricing start at just $45 to ensure that  local, small businesses can participate.
