It is strongly recommended that you arrive at the Boston Pride Festival by “T”. Given the large number of people present in the city for the day’s events, traffic will likely be highly congested and parking will be limited.

By T: Take the Green or Blue line to Government Center.

By car: we will post a list of partner parking facilities as we get closer to the event.

Advice for Visitors and Spectators

  • Pack appropriately! The Boston Pride Festival is a rain or shine event, so plan accordingly for the forecast weather conditions. Consider bringing sunscreen, plenty of bottled water, and an umbrella or raincoat.
  • Have fun!
  • Watch out for (your) kids. Make sure children are safe at all times. As the crowds pour in from the Parade onto the Festival grounds, it may become difficult to keep an eye on the little ones. Consider moving to the Family Fun Zone until the Parade is complete.
  • Respect the instructions from the Festival Staff and Volunteers. These individuals will be clearly distinguishable from the crowd. They are only doing their job and enforcing safety measures for the benefit of everyone.
