Awaiting Dates for 2020
A Capital Pride in a Capital City – Washington Pride.
Although the main components of Washington, DC Gay Pride are the Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, and the Annual Capital Pride Street Festival the following day, the city’s Pride festivities actually include a number of parties, gatherings, and activities that take place during the 10 days or so leading up to the big weekend
The Capital Pride Parade commences in the Dupont Circle neighborhood around P and 22rd Sts. NW. From here it moves east along P Street, turns north at Dupont Circle, northeast along New Hampshire Avenue, cuts east on R Street, turns south down 17th Street, then rejoins P Street and moves east to 14th Street, where it makes a final turn north and ends at 14th and R Sts. NW, smack dab in the middle of the Logan Circle neighborhood’s increasingly hip and vibrant restaurant scene.
In the shadows of the U.S. Capitol Building, more than 200,000 people will attend the Capital Pride Street Festival, which takes place at Pennsylvania Ave. NW between 3rd and 7th streets, just northwest of the Capitol grounds. The festival includes several stages with live entertainment, plus speakers, a family section, and much more.
All the gay bars and clubs participate with different party nights and events and most are located within walking distance or a short taxi ride from Pennsylvania Avenue.
