Every year, the Boston Pride Festival welcomes over 125,000 attendees to enjoy shopping and entertainment from over 100 exhibitors. This is a great place to get in touch with local non-profits, small businesses who are both run by LGBT individuals as well as allied business owner’s. The 2019 Boston Pride Festival will feature the annual Boston Pride Parade, and the Boston Pride Concert. While this is a crowded and big event, it’s still considered family-friendly, and there are Family Fun Zones to keep the little ones entertained and safe during the parade and throughout the festival.

The parade itself will start at Copley Square and finish at Boston City Hall Plaza, where most of the Pride Festival action occurs.
