Pride Vermont Parade & Festival

When: Sat., Sept. 8, 12:30 p.m. 2018

T he theme for this year’s Pride Vermont Parade & Festival, Our Stories / Our Lives, is all about owning and expressing one’s identity. “Claiming who we are, where we’ve come from and where we’re going is the simple yet strong intention and spirit behind Pride Vermont 2018,” reads the event website. Rainbow flags fly during a procession from the south end of Church Street in Burlington to Battery Park, where all-ages festivities commence with an Abenaki blessing and continue with vendors, activities, food and live entertainment. Lakota elder and women’s activist Beverly Little Thunder and advocate for LGBTQ individuals with disabilities David Frye serve as grand marshals, amplifying the message of inclusivity.

Price: Free.
