The Capital Pride Parade is back this year, and as organizers prepare to welcome large crowds on Saturday, visitors should also expect a new parade route.
The event will start at 14th Street, just south of T Street, at 3 p.m.
“We’re really excited to get back into the swing of things,” said Natalie Thompson, vice president of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Capital Pride Alliance.
She said the parade will go through more neighborhoods, including Logan and Dupont Circles.
“So everyone can participate in the Capital Pride Parade and more visibility, more opportunities for people to connect,” Thompson said.
There will also be family zones throughout the parade and the Pride Festival, happening Sunday from noon to 10:00 p.m. along Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
“Be prepared to have a really fun time,” Thompson said.

Residents should also expect road closures — plan ahead with a look at closures here.
