With a massive parade lining the streets of downtown Orlando, a marketplace filled with vendors from and supporting the LGBTQ+ community as well as the most impressive entertainment and fireworks display in the city, there’s no shortage of things to do at Come Out With Pride! Most importantly, no matter whether you’re LGBTQ+ or an ally, your presence helps send a message that we all stand united for Orlando and its many diverse communities.
The Most Colorful Parade
Kicking off at 4:00 PM, The Most Colorful Parade in Orlando is perhaps everyone’s most eagerly-anticipated part of Come Out With Pride, and as our community continues to heal following the events at Pulse we are very proud to present our incredible Community Grand Marshals leading the way:
- Community: Rebecca Storozuk, Orange County’s first transgender sheriff’s deputy
- Talent: Orlando Gay Chorus
- Honorary: Billy Manes
We look forward to having a very moving and uplifting parade, and this is your chance to get excited and show thanks to the individuals who have devoted so much energy to strengthening and supporting our community.
This year we’re also offering a special grandstands option along with our VIP Experience — you’ll not only get to sit in comfort throughout the event but also witness several of our parade groups perform exclusive “showstopper” moments right before your eyes!
Fireworks by Santore
Every great event deserves a great finale, and shortly after 9:00 PM we continue the tradition of saying goodnight with a dazzling spectacle of fireworks above Lake Eola. With nearly a mile of walkways around the water, there’s room for everyone to get a prime viewing spot.
And There’s More!
Don’t forget to check out our incredible entertainment lineup (coming soon) as well as all of the other amazing events happening throughout the week.
