Atlanta's Pride celebration centers around a handful of events over three days each October. The weekend begins on Friday night (Oct. 7) at 7 pm, with an official Atlanta Pride Kickoff Party at the Georgia Aquarium.
The actual Pride Festival takes place throughout the two-day weekend (Oct. 8 and 9, 2016), and includes plenty of top-notch entertainment on the stages at the festival grounds in Piedmont Park, as well as a Pride Marketplace (held from 10 am until 7 pm on Saturday, and 2 pm until 6 pm on Sunday) featuring some 200 vendors and organizations from the greater Atlanta GLBT community. Featured entertainment this year at the Atlanta Gay Pride Festival includes Jason Maek & Zaena, Kiiara, Zara Larsson, Jody Watley, the Michael Jons Band, and many others.
The annual Pride Parade, held on Sunday, October 9, begins at noon (floats and participants begin assembling around 10:30 that morning), departs from the Marta Civic Center Station, and ends at Piedmont Park.
