Pride Vermont

Parade & Festival

September 8, 2018 \\ Burlington, Vermont

Celebrating and supporting Vermont’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community of all ages, as well as educating and to serving as a bridge to create alliances with each other and with the greater community as a whole. 

Parade begins at 12:30 pm

The Pride Parade is a beloved institution here in Vermont and throughout the world. It began as an anniversary celebration of the Stonewall Riots but has evolved over time to encompass the many LGBTQ heroes, struggles, and victories since. Our parade begins at the south end of Church Street and ends at Battery Park where the festival is held.

Festival begins at 1:00 pm

The Pride Festival is one big party in Battery Park. It’s a place for the entire community – LGBTQ+ and ally – of all ages, races, and backgrounds to come together. Colorful, showstopping performers (Drag! Dance! Comedy! Poetry! Burlesque!) will be sure to entertain on stage while the park is filled with fabulous vendors with info and activities (and food!) for all.

Our Stories | Our Lives

is the theme for a very special Pride Vermont. 2018 has been challenging and even downright scary for our communities. Claiming who were are,  where we’ve come from and where we’re going is the simple yet strong intention and spirit behind Pride Vermont 2018. 

We encourage all community members,  allies and families of all LGBTQ+ peoples to use the hashtag #OurStoriesOurLives to share the stories of their brave and amazing lives as the summer rolls on. Stay tuned for more announcements where your stories, your brave lives will be recognized,  respected and amplified. Let’s get loud and proud.   #OurStoriesOurLives
