Center City & Penn's Landing
Join PFP at 11:30am on Sunday, June 9 at 13th and Locust and board the PFP trolley in the Philly Pride Parade. The parade goes from the Gayborhood in Center City to Penn’s Landing, arriving around between 1-1:30pm. We are normally near the front of the parade, so families can get out and watch, go the festival or catch a ride on the trolley back to Center City.

Thanks to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion for sponsoring the trolley again this year.
