Don’t miss one of the biggest celebrations in the Capital Region and the largest PRIDE in Upstate New York!

The Capital PRIDE Parade steps off at noon in Washington Park, at the intersection of Robin and State Streets. From there we will march down State Street, over Lark Street, up Madison Avenue and back into the park at the intersection of Madison and New Scotland Avenues.

The Capital PRIDE Festival will begin at noon in Washington Park, so plan to stay with us for the entire afternoon. There will be fabulous entertainment on the festival stage and activities for the entire family! This year's headliner is Mýa, an internationally known, respected singer, songwriter, producer, musician, dancer/choreographer, actress, activist, and philanthropist.

With high energy, top notch entertainment, hundreds of vendors - including some of the area’s best food trucks, crafters, shops and merchants, as well as community groups - a family zone, and some exciting surprises for 2019, the Capital PRIDE Festival is one of the region’s biggest and most highly anticipated events!
