Boston Pride For The People to Lead Celebrations for 2nd Year

Boston Pride For The People (BP4TP) today announced the 2024 Pride Parade and Festivals will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2024 on Boston Common and City Hall Plaza. BP4TP, a volunteer-run organization, will host the events for the second year. Boston's Pride celebration is the largest in New England.

"We are thrilled to be back for a second year helping our City and region celebrate the LGBTQ+ community's vibrancy and joy." said Adrianna Boulin, President of Boston Pride For The People. "We are committed to creating a Pride that is built by us and for us, that reflects and honors our rich culture and diversity."

BP4TP launched in 2023 and created the first Pride parade and festivals in Boston in more than three years. More than one million people attended the parade in 2023, which included more than 250 marching contingents and 215 vendors at the festivals. This year's events will include a Parade which starts in Copley Square, makes its way through the South End, and lands at Boston Common. Two festivals will take place throughout the day: an all ages festival on Boston Common, including vendors, food, musical performances, and more; a 21+ festival that takes place at Boston City Hall Plaza.

"We have big goals for this year's parade. We want to continue growing to be more inclusive and welcome even more community organizations," said Dan Ortega, Parade Co-Chair for Boston Pride For The People. "Seeing the streets of Boston bursting with the wide spectrum of LBGTQ+ people is one of the ways our community shows its Pride and its love for Boston as a whole."

Parade and festival registration will be open later this winter.

BP4TP is seeking volunteers and partners to successfully operate this year's events.
