Pride Parade


Saturday, August 27 at 12:00pm

Join Toledo Pride in 2016 as we line the streets of Downtown Toledo once again to show our support for the area LGBTQA community. We are thrilled to bring an event like this to life with the help of our community! Last year, over 50 local businesses, community organizations and religious organizations participated in the Toledo Pride Parade with thousands of excited, supportive spectators lining the streets of Downtown Toledo

This year’s Toledo Pride Parade route:


Are you or your organization interested in participating in the parade? 

Provide your organization with a unique mobile marketing opportunity before a crowd of thousands!  We want the 2016 Toledo Pride Parade to be more amazing than ever. For the first time, we are waiving the parade registration fee to get as many participating groups as possible. That’s right…registration is FREE! As an added incentive to express your pride, our esteemed panel of judges will award trophies to the top 3 parade entries.

Toledo Pride is excited to announce the addition of a second stage to this year’s Saturday festivities. The Family Stage will offer a variety of events and activities for kids of all ages! Toledo Pride has always been a family-friendly event and is excited to welcome a greater number of families and younger audience members to the parade.

We will again be offering cash prizes, awards and accolades for the most creative, best overall and people’s choice categories for parade participants.
With an expected growth in numbers, we expect that parade participants refrain from using any potentially dangerous or perceived violent props or supplies in cars and floats. Such items include, but are not limited to, poles, wires, guns (fake or real), or aerial acts. We also ask that parade participants consider the demographics of our audience and abstain from nudity and implied nudity as well as suggestive props or decorations. Pride reserves the right to deny any participant entry into the parade for any reason.
Keep it crazy and classy!
