Pride Portland! Parade and Festival
456 Congress Street
Portland, ME 04101 United States
The Pride Portland! Parade & Festival is the biggest celebration of the week, bringing thousands of people together to carry the flag through the streets of Portland, culminating with the celebration in Deering Oaks Park. We seek to highlight accessibility, activism, and advocacy. This includes making the festival as accessible to as many members of our Greater Portland LGBTQ+ community as possible. The wide array of participating organizations and business makes for a veritable resource fair, accompanied by inspiration and entertainment on stage. There will be an area specially catering to families with young children, and the whole park is an alcohol- and tobacco-free environment. Food will be available for purchase, with some seating nearby, along with lawn seating. Bathrooms, including 3 fully accessible ones, will be onsite. Shuttles to off-site parking may also be available.
