Out in the streets for the biggest Pride celebration in the world!

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

NOTE: To prepare for historic attendance and participation expected for WorldPride and the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in 2019, NYC Pride will be changing the route for the NYC Pride March in 2018. VIEW NEW NYC PRIDE MARCH ROUTE FOR 2018

The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2017, we were joined by over 450+ unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 110 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.

Don’t miss the live broadcast of the 2018 NYC Pride March on ABC7 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on June 24. 

Viewing The March is free and open to the public. No tickets necessary.


REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!

 

It is the responsibility of all marching contingents to ensure that their group members abide by all event rules and regulations. Before registering, please ensure that you have reviewed the March Rules, the March FAQ, and the March Refund Policy.

Changes in 2018

Please note, due to increasing demand and the ever-growing length/time of the March, we are limiting the total number of floats and vehicles in 2018. We are also asking organizations to limit the number of marchers in their contingent to a maximum of 200 members. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available to help keep your members involved in Pride; we are happy to chat with you about such options.
