The parade route will end with the culmination in Philadelphia’s gayborhood. We are awaiting the exact parade route from the organizers.

But we do know that it will kick off with speeches and it includes an unfurling of a 400-foot-long rainbow flag, making it the largest in the state of Pennsylvania.

In fact, it's even one of the very largest Pride flags in the entire nation:

Who Is Headlining Philly Pride 2024?

For the first year, Philly Pride 365 has announced a headlining act for this year’s event. And, of course, it’ll be none other than Philadelphia’s own, Sapphira Cristál. She’ll perform on the Muses Stage at 6 pm on Sunday.

Cristal, of course, most recently was the runner-up and Miss Congeniality on Season 16 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Sapphira Cristál is VERY worthy of the honor of HEADLINING her hometown Pride event with what's sure to be an incredible show.
