Celebrate! After two-year hiatus Chicago Pride Parade returns in 2022

One of the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ celebrations, the Chicago Pride Parade returns Sunday, June 26 after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The parade was cut short due to inclement weather in 2019 and canceled in 2020—marking a first in its 50-year history.

Usually the capstone of Pride month in Chicago, the parade traditionally takes place on the last Sunday of June. The 2021 parade was initially rescheduled to October but was eventually canceled.

The city is ready for a super Sunday celebration after all that it has endured over the past two years.

Event promoter Matthew Harvat, aka CircuitMOM, proclaimed “Chicago is truly turning it up!”

City officials expect the parade to be bigger than ever with over a million people expected at the celebration in the Lakeview and Uptown neighborhoods, including the LGBTQ enclave popularly known as ‘Boystown.’

The 52nd annual Chicago Pride Parade will step off at noon Sunday, June 26, 2022 from Broadway and Montrose and will proceed south along Broadway to Halsted, then south on Halsted, east on Belmont, south on Broadway and east on Diversey to Cannon.
