43rd Annual Santa Cruz Pride Parade

Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 11:00 Am

 

Cheer on our 2017 Grand Marshals and a wide variety of contingents making up the largest LGBTQ+ Pride parade on the Central Coast. Santa Cruz Pride celebrates the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) community in Santa Cruz County. In this queer visibility action, members of our Santa Cruz community - organizations, allies, supportive groups, churches, candidates, ensembles, performers, parents, children - will show pride, activism, enthusiasm and love.
