Pride Fest & Parade Schedule


We are doing things a little differently this year and taking it back. Iowa City Pride this year has decided to hold a Unity March in replace of the parade this year on Sat. October 2nd.

Why a March? We wanted to show our community we are still here and we will come together to fight for our rights and the rights of others. The March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights took place on October 14th, 1979 and for The Gay Liberation Front who marched in the homecoming parade in 1970.

Today, we continue to see our trans siblings being attacked and we see our black and brown siblings being attacked. We are Marching in Unity to let everyone know we are here.

Below is the 2021 March route. It will begin at College Green Park on Sat. Oct 2nd and we will begin gathering at 10am, with the March starting at Noon (12pm), we will have poster boards and markers for those who wish to make signs. No motor vehicles are allowed. Mask are high encouraged for everyone who is participating and we encourage everyone to keep a safe distance from each other as well.
