Capital Pride to Take Place In-Person This Summer in DC

-

The Capital Pride Alliance announced Tuesday that the Capital Pride 2022 Celebration will be held between June 3 and June 12, following a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s event will be the 47th edition of the Capital Pride in Washington, DC.

“We are very hopeful for the future, as we plan for the return of this year’s large-scale Pride Celebration, in addition to the 50th anniversary Celebration of Pride in the Nation’s Capital in 2025,” said Ryan Bos, Executive Director of the Capital Pride Alliance. “After two years without a Parade and Festival, our community is yearning for a sense of celebration, unity, and, quite simply, normalcy.” 

The Capital Pride parade and block party will take place on June 11. The festival and the concert, along Pennsylvania Avenue, near the US Capitol building, are scheduled for June 12. 

“We’re excited to soon unveil the plans for this year’s celebration that we had originally hoped to implement in 2020,” Tiffany Royster, the alliance’s Celebration Chair, said. “A new, streamlined Parade route will reflect the evolving footprint of our growing community, all while providing better vantage points, increased health and safety measures, and ample space for a community Block Party.”

Organizations and businesses, including food vendors, may register to take part in the event. Click here to register.
