The 2022 SCP Parade

Star City Pride will FINALLY be making history with Lincoln’s first-EVER Pride Parade! The Star City Pride Parade Committee has been hard at work planning this fun event!

On Saturday, June 19th, we are bringing the Pride Parade to the Nebraska State Capitol. Come out and celebrate this historic event with us and our participating dignitaries, businesses and individual entries! Now is your chance to show us what PRIDE means to you! For as little as $100 ($50 non-profit) you can participate with an entry float, walk, car, or group organization. email Gretchen Arroyo Parade Chair: for details. Sponsorships are also available!

Star City Pride will also be live-streaming Pride Parade that day for some of our partners, supporters, and community that cannot attend. We want YOU to get in on the act, too! Live stream your message from the parade (or home) and share it to your social media on June 19th! Remember to use #SCPParade2021 to spread the word. To keep everything consistent, here are a few guidelines;

  • We love floats! Contact us for our list of vendors offering discounts for everything you may need to construct one
  • No entries wider than 9 feet if motorized
  • You don’t have to build a float to participate! We welcome groups on foot, but limit the size
  • No nudity No swearing, please
  • Insurance is mandatory for any motorized vehicles
  • Awards for entries will be publicized live and at the Festival
  • Show us your PRIDE!

There is a fee to participate, but we are also encouraging free-will donations from the public to help make up for lost funding due to the restrictions on our live event fundraisers. Go to to donate. We need help so that we can live stream for everyone!

Give us a heads up by Friday, June 4th if you have a group that is attending as a spectator WITH an entry, and we may interview you and tag you to our page!

We miss seeing you in person, and we can’t wait to celebrate with PRIDE!
