Tips, Transportation & Parking for the St Pete Pride Parade & Related Events on Saturday, June 24

Consider public transportation: As you might expect, an event attended by 200,000 people will cause some congestion. The good news is that Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) will have Park & Ride locations (such as at St. Petersburg High School at 2501 Fifth Ave N. in St. Pete) so that you don't have to try to find parking near the parade route. In addition, all PSTA bus and SunRunner routes are FREE throughout the St. Pete/Clearwater area (Pinellas County) this Saturday, June 24, to help you get around during St Pete Pride. Check out all the Pride public transportation details!

Other free transportation options: COCKtail in the Grand Central District will provide a free shuttle between the bar and the parade route from 3 p.m. to midnight on June 24.

An important note about parking at the St. Pete Pier during the Pride Parade: Yes, it's the closest parking to the parade, but be aware that the entrance/exit to Pier parking will be closed around 4 or 4:30 p.m. on June 24. This means you won't be able to move your car until after the parade is over (the parade begins at 6 p.m. and runs for several hours).

VIP Seating for the St Pete Pride Parade: If creature comforts are important to you, consider buying a $75 ticket in the "Glamstands" which gets you a front row seat, restrooms, and a private cash bar (with two drink tickets).

When does the St Pete Pride Parade start and what is the route? The parade will begin at 6 p.m. in the vicinity of Albert Whitted Airport (480 Bayshore Dr., St. Pete) and travel a little over a mile, ending near the historic Vinoy Resort & Golf Club. 

What else is happening during St Pete Pride on the day of the St Pete Pride Parade? Beautiful Vinoy Park (701 Bayshore Dr. NE, St. Pete) will host a Pride festival from 2 - 10 p.m. with live entertainment on stage from 2 - 9 p.m. In addition, The Trans Pride March will kick off at 5:30 p.m. from Vinoy Park, walking to Albert Whitted Park where the parade begins.
