Charlotte Pride is back for the first time since 2019

The festival & parade happen this weekend August 20 & 21

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Pride Festival & Parade is finally back! This is their first event since 2019. The Charlotte Pride Festival and Parade is hosted in Uptown on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 12 to 10pm and Sunday, Aug. 21 from 12 to 6pm. It all happens on S. Tryon Street.

The parade is on Sunday, Aug. 21, 1-4pm, on N. Tryon St. There will be nearly 200 vendors in the festival and 200 entrants in the parade, including 50 floats, and approx. 10,000 marchers participating.

This is the first event since 2019, which hosted 200,000 visitors. They are expecting to exceed that attendance number this year.

This event is huge for the Queen City and many people are planning to attend. So they are still needing volunteers to lend a hand! If you would like to help out and volunteer go online to charlottepride.org/volunteer.
