Celebrate 30 years of Philly Pride this year during the biggest celebration to date. PrideDay 2018 brings out more participants, event stalls and activities this year than ever before. Guests enjoy family-friendly parades, live entertainment and festivities all weekend with the main event culminating Sunday, June 10.

During the first Philadelphia Pride Parade in 1988, festivalgoers began marching in Rittenhouse Square, but now the LGBTQ Pride festivities begin in the heart of the Gayborhood, on the corner of 13th and Locust streets. Beginning at 11:30 a.m., guests begin along the 1.5-mile walk through Center City and Philadelphia’s historic district ending at the Great Plaza in Penn’s Landing. The scenic walk and ending site are perfect for a day of festivities, beginning around 1 p.m.

This is a popular event so locals know to get up early and get in line on Chestnut Street for their event wristband. Traveling into the city for the big day? No problem, just get in early and make a weekend out of it.

Stay in Center City within walking distance of the parade, or opt for Old City or the waterfront for easy access to the admission booths. Either way you’ll find a slew of family-friendly accommodations and weekend activities to enjoy. Tickets are $15 each and grant access to the main event under the Penn’s Landing tents, including live shows, performances and fun.

For those getting into the city early, grab a wristband for just $10 at the block party on Friday, June 8, at 6 p.m., where guests can enjoy the pre-party event and get ready for the fun weekend ahead.

Read more about the festival’s history here and check in for more information, tips, tricks and best practices for attending and enjoying the event to its fullest. Eat, drink and be merry with locals and tourists from around the area.

This is a fun-loving and positive event so come ready for costumes, vibrant celebrations and important traditions showcasing the city’s love and admiration for families, residents and travelers of all walks of life.

Celebrating Veterans Day

Like most holidays calling into memory those who have given a great sacrifice, Veterans Day can be a hard day to explain to young kids. Through the parades, fireworks and days off school, the meaning of the day can become lost unless parents force the point home.
