FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Greensboro Pride is an annual festival along South Elm Street between East Market Street and Smothers Place in downtown Greensboro. It is a stationary festival with a stage near Smothers Place and a KidZone between February 1 Place and East Market Street. In 2020, we are holding our first-ever parade, which will be separate from the festival.

Where can I park?

You can park in any city-owned parking deck. The one on West Washington & Greene Streets (official address is 211 South Greene Street, Greensboro, NC 27401)  is the closest to our festival (GPS Coordinates @36.0706981,-79.7935543,17z) Parking is free on the weekends.

Can I bring my pets?

Pets are allowed according to Greensboro leash and pet laws, however, due to the large crowd size, we discourage pets from attending. If you do bring a pet, please make sure to bring bags to clean up after your pets.

Vendor numbers will be given out the day of the fesival by our traffic coordinators. Please make sure you know the name of the business (as it was registered on the Pride website) as well as the name of the person who registered to expedite the setup process. There will be multiple traffic coordinators to help direct you to your space.
