Yakima Pride Parade

Saturday, June 8, 2024 | KICK-OFF AT 10:00 AM!

March to the Beat of Inclusion 🌈

Yakima Pride encourages you to join us: OUT, LOUD and PROUD as we honor those that came before us and those who advocate alongside us. 

Be a part of the heartbeat of our community - the Pride Parade! Whether you strut with style, roll with flair, or ride in celebration, the stage is set for you. Join us in lifting the monumental Pride Flag high as we transform Yakima Ave into a vibrant rainbow pathway!

We encourage all LGBTQ+ identifying people, supportive and affirming businesses, non-profit groups, schools, and community allies to participate.

Yakima has a long history and tradition of parades that celebrate the community, families, businesses, and schools. We believe that Pride Parades should also be part of this tradition.

While LGBTQ+ Pride celebrations in Yakima have often been celebrated out of public view and often in secrecy; we believe that Pride Parades should be celebrated in the spirit of visibility and "One Community."

Parade Route & Viewing

Begins at N 16th AVE and travels east bound along YAKIMA AVE to S NACHES AVE.

Route: 10:00 AM STEP-OFF

Where do I stand as a spectator?

The Yakima Pride Parade will follow Yakima Sunfair Parade's familiar route of more than one-and-a-half miles through Downtown Yakima.

Spectating is simple! - Bring a chair, take a seat and watch from any point, between 16th Ave and Naches Ave, on Yakima Ave! 

Announcement Stage

Depending on the number of parade contingents, we will have a guest announcer that will be located at the iconic entrance at the old Yakima Mall, announcing parade contingents and commentating as the parade marches by!

Let's ignite the celebration! 

Join the Yakima Pride Parade on June 8, 2024 and proudly display your Pride as we march through the heart of downtown Yakima! Whether you're representing a GSA, a local business, or a community group, everyone is welcome to express themselves and be part of the parade!

In 2022 and 2023, we made history alongside our friends from Seattle PrideFest by presenting an unforgettable moment in Yakima's LGBTQ+ history. Together, we unfurled a massive 135 feet long and 30 feet wide PRIDE FLAG down Yakima Avenue, creating a truly glorious sight!

This year, we're bringing back the GIANT PRIDE FLAG, and we need your help to carry this beautiful symbol along Yakima Ave!

To register, designate one person to represent your group and communicate with us before and during the event. We're committed to keeping things organized and minimizing confusion!

Safety and respect are paramount during the parade:

Let's ensure everyone has a fantastic time by prioritizing safety. Safety first!

Yakima Pride embraces every individual, and we're grateful for a community that celebrates diversity. Let's all have a blast while being mindful of our surroundings and respectful to all attendees, especially the younger ones. So, let's dress appropriately and act with kindness and respect!

What are you waiting for? Reserve your spot in the Yakima Pride Parade today and let's showcase the true spirit of Pride!
