With Seattle Pride events going virtual, you may be feeling less spirit than usual.

Besides several rainbow food deals and Pride-themed pop-ups, we do admit; Pride’s not the same as it was pre-pandemic.

Lucky for us, Washington is slowly returning to normal, and a few of our wonderful Pride parades are coming back.

Here are all of the Pride parades happening in Seattle this year:

Alki Beach Pride
