PRIDEChicago announced that the date of this year's Pride Parade is Sunday, Oct. 3.
The Parade route will remain the same as past years. The path will begin at Montrose Avenue and Broadway and then move south on Broadway to Halsted Street. It will then continue south on Halsted to Belmont, where it turns east to Broadway and then south on Broadway to Diversey, where it again turns east, to the end point at Cannon Drive.
The organization stressed that this is a ONE-TIME change in the date for the event. This change was made necessary by COVID-19 and concerns for the safety of participants and onlookers were a parade to take place in June of this year.
According to PRIDEChicago, "This year's parade takes place at the beginning of LGBTQ History Month. We will be celebrating our part in that history and encourage everyone to explore our LGBTQ history and see how we reached where we are today and the LGBTQ people from the past who helped to make it happen."
Next year, the Pride Parade will take place Sunday, June 26, 2022.
