Chicago Pride Parade 2022: Back on Sunday after a 2-year hiatus, what you need to know

After taking the last two years off from celebrating in person due to the pandemic, the Chicago Pride Parade back in full swing Sundays on the streets of Lake View and Uptown, which are traditionally one of the city’s biggest gatherings of the year.

The parade represents the biggest moment of Pride Month for many in the LGBTQ+ community. The date in late June commemorates the Stonewall riots of 1969, a series of protests in New York that are considered a key event in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the United States.

If you’re planning on going, here are the basics of Chicago Pride Parade 2022:

When, where does it start?

It begins at noon on Sundays at Montrose Avenue and Broadway. Target, ALDI and Jewel-Osco locations are nearby if you need a drink or supplies at the last minute.

What is the full parade route?

The parade will move southeast on North Broadway before turning south on North Halsted Street. It then turns left onto West Belmont Avenue, turning east before turning back onto North Broadway. Finally, the route turns left onto West Diversi Parkway and ends at Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park.

Below, you can see a map of the entire route.

What is the weather forecast?

Unlike Chicago’s recent days, it looks like Sunday’s parade won’t be scorching. Till Thursday morning, Sunday’s maximum temperature is expected to be close to 82 degrees. If you’re going out early, there’s a 40% chance of rain before 8 a.m., a few hours before it starts raining.

Second Big Pride Program Sunday

The second day of Pride in the Park will be at Grant Park Two day festival. Unlike the parade, this other major event isn’t free: general admission for Sundays is $45, plus a fee. Musical acts include Alesso, Rebecca Black, Daya and J. Varra included.
