Participants Finalized for 2018 Tucson Pride Parade Presented by Intuit

Tucson Pride is turning over a new leaf with the 2018 Tucson Pride Parade. Consistent with this year’s “New Beginnings” theme, a number of changes have unfolded as this year’s parade approaches including the addition of a first-time Title Sponsor, Intuit, newly crowned Tucson Pride royalty, and a new location.

With the support of the City of Tucson, and considering the feedback from the community, we will bring our parade out of the dark and into the light. The parade will be the morning of September 29th, 2018, at 11:00AM. There is no cost to attend the parade. The route will take us down Country Club from Broadway and into Reid Park, where it will immediately kick off this year’s festival.

The varied line-up for this year’s parade features a broad range of businesses, community resources, youth organizations, social groups, civic leaders, and political candidates. The full line-up can be found below.
