The Parade starts at 11am at the Park and Flea lot in downtown Salisbury. The parade route is displayed on the map above. From Park and Flea, head South on Poplar Hill, then turn Left on Market Street. Turn Left on North Division and cross over the rainbow crosswalk. The Parade ends near Market Street Inn in the Wicomico Public Library Lot.
Spectators are welcome to observe the parade from anywhere on the route.
A Festival follows the parade, starting at noon with a kickoff. The entertainment area, kids zone, and beer and wine garden will be located in Lot 1. This is the same location where New Years Eve is celebrated as well as where the Hensen Stage, Marketplace, and Food Vendors are found during the National Folk Festival. Street Parking will be available; however, we recommend using the Public Parking Garage.
Salisbury Pride is a free, large-scale, outdoor event that includes a parade, a fantastic array of on-stage entertainment, vendors, food trucks, a beer and wine garden, a kids zone specifically designed for families with young children and so much more.
What to Expect.
Salisbury Pride is a proud partnership between
Salisbury PFLAG and the City of Salisbury.
June is national PRIDE month, a month set aside to remember, celebrate, and empower LGBTQ+ people and their contributions to the flourishing of humanity. All across this great country, each June, LGBTQ+ people and their allies gather for festivals, parades, parties, demonstrations, and marches that boldly proclaim their PRIDE and commitment to equality and inclusion for all.
PRIDE month is a time to celebrate how far we have progressed as a society as well as acknowledge where more progress needs to be made in order to ensure that all Americans are treated with dignity and respect.
Salisbury Pride is a joyful celebration of kindness, love, diversity, and inclusion and we welcome you to help make our historic event a success
