Gay Pride Week 2016

Call Downtown Yellow Taxi for your ride to and from the St. Petersburg Gay Pride Week 2016 parade.

This week is Gay Pride Week 2016 in St. Petersburg, and as you know, this is always a huge event. Our parade draws well over 200,000 people, making it the largest pride parade in Florida. In spite of the tragedy in Orlando, the festival will go on. And ironically, thanks to the solidarity of all Americans against terrorism, this will probably be the biggest festival yet. The parade itself is made up of more than 150 different businesses and organizations, and more than 4,500 marchers on Central Avenue. The block party begins at 5 pm, and the parade starts at sunset.

While many bars and businesses will be having their own events and parties, here is an overview of the official events for Gay Pride Week 2016:

Wednesday, June 22nd- Stonewall Reception, presented by the Museum of Fine Arts 6 pm to 9 pm

Thursday, June 23rd- Rooftop Party, presented by Hotel Zamora 8 pm to 10 pm

Friday, June 24th- SP2 Concert featuring Deborah Cox 7 pm to 11 pm

Saturday, June 25th- St. Petersburg Pride Parade 5 pm to 11 pm

Sunday, June 26th- St. Petersburg Pride Festival 11 am to 6 pm
