Pride Parade

July 20 @ 11:00 am

Save the Date!

Please join Third and Gates Presbyterian Church families and friends in the 2024 Rochester Pride Parade.

The Rochester Pride Parade will be held on Saturday, July 20. Note that both the step off time and location have CHANGED. It will start at 11:00 a.m. at the intersection of South Avenue and Science Parkway. The parade will travel north on South Avenue and end at the festival, which will take place in Highland Park. Parade route and details here.

I suggest you are parked by 10:00 AM. That should give you time to find our location on Science Parkway, meet the group, grab a sign and be ready to step off at 11 AM.
Parking will be available in the lots marked on the map. Here is the link to the map with the Parking areas and the parade route.

Our group will have one car (a Prius) for 4 people who can not walk the route. THE FIRST 4 (four) PEOPLE WHO LET Jeremy Stratton-Smith KNOW THAT THEY NEED TO RIDE WILL GET SEATS in the car. Email him at [email protected].

Sometime during the week before the Saturday parade, I will send you an email with our lineup number. Once you park, look for the group by our number on Science Parkway. You can also ask one of the parade helpers for the location for the “Third Church More Light Committee’ group.

The parade will happen rain or shine. Carry water, especially if it is a HOT day.
Wear bright colors. Bring your Pride flags and Pride related signs and church banners.

We look forward to seeing you and many of your friends marching with us in the 2024 ROC Pride Parade.
