The Pride in Kingston Committee would like to thank everyone for registering your events and vendor and community booths for our parade day and Pride in Kingston Community Fair at Skeleton Park on Saturday, June 17th, 2017. If you are still planning to march in the parade with a group please let us know by filling out the registration form below.
Pride Week in Kingston is June 11th-18th, 2017. The parade will leave McBurney Park (Skeleton Park) at noon on Saturday, June 17th. The parade will arrive back at the park at around 1pm. For the rest of the afternoon, learn more about our local community organizations, explore the works of local artisans and enjoy live entertainment until 4pm.
MARCH IN THE PARADE
Everyone in the LGBTQ2+ community and their allies are not only just welcome to march in the parade, but encouraged! Kingston’s Pride parade relies on the community to actively participate in marching in the parade. We understand there are barriers for some people to be actively engaged and we look forward to seeing you cheering from the sidelines. If you are going to be marching with a group or business please let us know so we can coordinate the parade accordingly. Please keep in mind, parade day is a family-friendly event held in a public space so we please ask you dress and behave appropriately.
