PARADE & FESTIVAL
The parade will start in Copley Square at 11 A.M. and move through the city’s South End, finishing at Boston Common where everyone can enjoy the festival including performances from local and national entertainers. City Hall Plaza will host a Block Party for those 21+ that begins later in the afternoon. All BP4TP events are free to attend.
Last year, more than 1 million people attended Pride, the region’s largest LGBTQ+ event.
Parade + Festival Registration will be completed online via Eventbrite, where interested parties will reserve their place in the parade and/or space at the festivals. Registration fees and payment options are outlined in the app.

Several hundred community groups, businesses, schools, government agencies, employee resource groups, elected officials, and others are expected to march in the parade. Organizers estimate that the number of booths available for vendors at the festivals will be 250 and are likely to sell out.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available, at levels ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. The cost of producing the parade and festivals is estimated at nearly $1 million. In addition to registration fees, contributions from community and businesses are an essential source of financing the events.
A Partnership Package is available for corporations and non-profit organizations interested in supporting this year’s Pride. It includes the dates for informational sessions for interested sponsors and can be found on the BP4TP website: https://www.bostonprideforthepeople.org/sponsors
