Memphis Pride Parade
June 3 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm CDT
As the annual Memphis Pride Festival rolls around, it brings with it a feeling of excitement, anticipation, and joy for the city’s LGBTQ+ community and its allies. But what is Pride without the big, bold, and colorful parade that celebrates the very essence of this vibrant community? The Memphis Pride Parade is a magnificent showcase of the region’s inclusivity and diversity, drawing thousands of people to witness the spectacle of over 100 units featuring 3,000+ participants of all ages and backgrounds.
The Pride Parade is nothing short of a wonder to behold. It winds its way through the historic Beale Street Entertainment District, filling the streets with music, dance, and joy. The presence of church groups, performing arts groups, museums, high school & college groups, senior groups, non-profit organizations, city & county leaders, local businesses and others demonstrates the growing support for the LGBTQ+ community in the region.
In addition to the diverse range of participants, the Memphis Pride Parade would not be possible without the support of its sponsors. Prominent sponsors like First Horizon, St. Jude, Nike, and FedEx, demonstrate their commitment to the LGBTQ+ community and their willingness to celebrate inclusivity and diversity.
These sponsors have helped to create an event that is entertaining and inspiring, providing a platform for people to come together and embrace their identities. As a result, the parade continues to grow and thrive, reminding us of the importance of unity, love, and acceptance in our communities.
