The Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade is scheduled to return to Piedmont Park for October 7-9, 2022 after a pandemic-related, two-year hiatus during which events have been held virtually.
For decades the festival was held in October in Midtown and Piedmont Park, with thousands of attendees participating in a bustling marketplace, live entertainment, cultural exhibits and the Southeast’s biggest Pride parade.
“Have you missed us?” the organization posted on its Facebook page. “Because we’ve certainly missed you all! It’s been 3 years since we last celebrated in person together as we’ve grappled with this ongoing pandemic and made tough decisions to prioritize safety. We’re beyond grateful to be a part of such an understanding and caring community. So to make up for lost time, we’re going ALL IN this year. Mark your calendars now for October 7-9, 2022 back at Piedmont Park. You know the drill. Bring your friends, lovers, and good energy to help us celebrate Atlanta Pride!”
The organization is expected to release more details on marketplace applications, performers, and the parade details in the coming weeks.
