The Pride Parade embodies 2015’s Show & Tell theme, because what's more Show & Tell than a parade?! At the Pride Parade, you’ll enjoy vibrant floats, watch entertaining performances, and gather with thousands of your closest friends to celebrate our LGBTQ community. Over 100 organizations participate in the parade, competing for awards like, “Best Overall”, “Best Interpretation of Theme”, and “Most Creative”. 


Line-up begins on Buffalo State campus. 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.
