Capital Pride Parade FAQs
There are strict number caps by the parade organizers, so we need know who is showing up in order to respect that policy and keep everyone safe.
The staging/line-up map is posted in June by Capital Pride, just days before the parade. When you register with us, you’ll get an email update when we find out our specific line-up spot.
We will find out about exact timing soon, but line-up is between 11:30 AM and 2:00 PM and the parade starts at 3:30 PM.
Sunscreen, comfortable shoes, water, and a positive attitude. If you’ve got a GLOE t-shirt, great! If you have other items that “read” Jewish or LGBTQ you’d like to wear, great! If you can, please wear a top that is a rainbow color – either our t-shirt or your own! (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.)
