It’s one of our favorite times of the year — It’s Pride weekend in Washington DC!

Capital Pride weekend will run from June 7 to June 10, 2018. It’s a great time to meet up with friends and celebrate what makes us diverse! There are numerous events going on this weekend in Washington, DC; here’s your guide to Pride!

Kick off the weekend with a gala that commemorates individuals who’ve played a significant role in raising awareness to LGBTQ issues, followed by the official opening party at Echostage.

The official DC Pride parade will be on June 9 from 4:30-7:30pm. Above is the official route for the parade, which also highlights events happening throughout the route.
