This weekend marks an all-out kiki in Washington, DC for Pride 2018. DC has a longstanding history of Gay Pride, with its first Pride celebration dating back to 1972, and the first of many annual Pride celebrations being organized only a few years later in 1975. Fast-forward 43 years and this weekend will bring Pride 2018, which will feature national sponsors, dance parties, rows of food tents, and more -- one of the largest landmark Pride events in the country.
From the DC Front Runners Pride Run 5K to Pride on the Pier, there’s every kind of event you could hope for happening around the city. Definitely check out the complete calendar of all the events, but know that Capital Pride’s signature event is the Pride Parade, set to host thousands of people and includes floats, vehicles, local businesses, politicians, community groups, and more.
