This year promises to be the biggest and best Parade Knoxville PrideFest has ever seen! We invite you to be a part of the celebration! Do you own a business? Go to a supportive church? Are you in a community group? If so, grab a few friends and a banner or, better yet, build a float. Feel free to be as creative as possible while promoting your business, church, group, etc. Don’t forget the beads, candy, flyers, and water as the crowd always loves freebies! There will be trophies for the top 3 floats. Just use our 2014 PrideFest Theme “Live. Love. Be. PROUD!” in your float design/decoration and you might just be one of our winners!
It’s FREE and simple to register. You will also find a map of the parade route on that same page so you can get your friends to come cheer you on. However, if you plan to participate in the 2014 PrideFest Parade you need to register no later than Wednesday, June 18th.
Staging for the parade will take place on Saturday June 21st at 10:00am in the State Street surface lot. The parade will start promptly at 12pm, running down State St., up Summit Hill to Gay Street, Turn on Clinch Avenue and ending at the World’s Fair Park. PrideFest will begin immediately following and run from 1pm-8pm at World’s Fair Park.
Please feel free to email or call with any questions that you might have.
