Orlando Pride Parade 2021
Come Out with Pride Orlando’s festival and parade are back this year and organizers say it will be bigger and better than ever.
Last year’s celebration was toned down because of COVID-19 concerns. In 2020, a caravan of cars traveling around the city replaced the traditional parade around Lake Eola Park.
Join LGBTQ+ community members and allies as we come together for a day-long unforgettable festival! The festival along with The Most Colorful Parade is the most eagerly anticipated event of Pride Week and will feature nearly 100 groups spanning a 1-mile route through downtown Orlando.
This year, the parade route is being extended to allow for more social distancing. Participants will be asked to wear a mask throughout the festival, which runs from noon to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday in Lake Eola Park. The parade begins at 4 p.m.
Unified By Pride
This year’s theme is “Unified By Pride.” A diverse group of entertainers will perform throughout the festival. On two stages in Lake Eola Park. Grand Marshals for this year’s parade include local entertainer Blue Star. Pulse survivor and Equality Florida activist Brandon Wolf. One of the first ever openly transgender Olympians, UCF graduate Chelsea Wolfe. One Orlando Alliance Board Chair Felipe Sousa-Laz ballet and local restaurateur and winner of Guy’s Grocery Games Trina Gregory-Propst
Throughout the day, guests can enjoy live entertainment at multiple stages around the park, including celebrity headliners. Visit the Pride Marketplace and enjoy dozens of vendors, businesses and organizations committed to diversity in the Central Florida area. The night will conclude with a signature fireworks finale on the lake marking the official close of Come Out with Pride 2021
While you can have lots of fun in the sun early in the week, Orlando Pride really comes to life over the weekend. This is when thousands of visitors and locals meet at Lake Eola. More than 100 groups and 2,000 individuals take part in the Orlando Pride Parade as they march from the lake to downtown Orlando, along a one-mile path. The parade works its way around multiple stages and other venues where you can see some of your favorite celebrities
Showcasing a diverse series of events for the 2021 year, Come Out with Pride boasts two stages around Lake Eola Park—the Amphitheater stage and the Unified by Pride dance stage. Each will host live entertainment throughout the day featuring local artists and celebrity headliners.
