2013 marks the 42nd anniversary of the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade. The theme is "Embrace, Encourage, Empower" and the event will be held over the weekend of June 29 and 30, 2013. With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and more than twenty community-run stages and venues, the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest gathering of LGBT people and allies in the nation.
The two-day celebration takes place in Civic Center Plaza in downtown San Francisco the last full weekend of June each year. The Parade, which takes place the Sunday morning of the event, kicks off from Beale Street along Market and ends at Market and 8th St. in the heart of downtown San Francisco.
