Disability Pride Parade

New York City Disability Pride Parade

Every year the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities works with the non-profit organizations Disability Pride NYC and Art Beyond Sight to organize the New York City Disability Pride Parade.

Route Change: This year the NYC Disability Pride Parade route will be reversed, we will be starting out in Madison Square Park, marching down Broadway and ending in Union Square Park. This is only a reversal of the same route that we always walk and roll down. For additional information regarding travel to the lineup locations at Madison Square Park, please refer to the registration below.

This year the parade will be held on Sunday, July 15, at 11:00AM. We will be marching from Madison Square Park to Union Square Park. At the end of the march, we will be continuing our celebration with post-parade entertainment and a festival, which will include food, live music and informational booths.

In addition, this year we are excited to announce that we will be holding competitions highlighting groups and individuals that really bring the party to the parade. We will be presenting awards in the following categories:

  • Most Parade Spirit
  • Best Costume(s)
  • Best Float
  • Best Performance (singing, signing, etc.)
