Pride Parade

2014 Sponsor: M&T Bank

Date: Sunday, June 7th

Time: TBD

Location:  The Parade begins at Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue and ends at the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Allen Street

Registration:  Registration for 2014 Pride Parade is now closed.  Please check back in early 2015 for more information.


A vibrant celebration of the entire LGBTQ community, Buffalo & WNY’s Pride Parade features floats, performances, and participants from over 100 organizations. Awards are presented each year for outstanding entries.


After some difficulty lining up in years past, we have worked with the City of Buffalo and Buffalo State College to coordinate parade line-up on the Buffalo State campus. We're sure this will lend itself to a safer environment and be more convenient for our many parade participants. For spectators, the parade begins at the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue and continues down Elmwood, ending at the corner of Allen Street. Participants and attendees are encouraged to take the NFTA train from either the Allen Street/Medical Campus Station or the Fountain Plaza Station district to the Pride Festival at Canalside.

Awards for the 2014 Pride Parade are as follows:

Best Overall: Transgender Alliance

Most Creative: Jones Pond

Best Interpretation of Theme: Gateway Longview
