One of the many reasons we love the city of Orlando is its diversity and the love and support it has for the LGBTQ community. This weekend the city will once again celebrate Come Out With Pride in Downtown Orlando. The inclusive Pride festival in Downtown Orlando hosts a ton of entertainment and events for adults and families.
Come Out With Pride Parade Schedule and Route
On Saturday, October 15th the annual Come Out With Pride Parade will make its grand appearance around Lake Eola Park. PRO TIP: Grab your spot on Central and Summerlin early. The Trans March starts at 2 p.m. and the Come Out With Pride Orlando Parade will start promptly at 4 p.m.
Parking in Downtown Orlando During Pride?
If you’re close to the Downtown Orlando area, your best bet is to leave the car at home and rent a scooter or a bike. If you really have to drive into Downtown Orlando for Come Out With Pride 2022, we suggest you get there as early as possible.
There are parking garages located within a 5-to-10-minute walk from Lake Eola Park. Several streets surrounding the lake will be closed in preparation for the parade, so plan accordingly.
