Join us for the 2019 Pride Festival and Parade

Share in the celebration of the Portland Waterfront Pride Festival and Pride Parade 2019!

Here it is! On June 15 and 16, we celebrate one of the most important festivals of the year in Portland and, with the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, it is a powerful year to get involved. Participate with your local Democratic Party in the event! Join us for the parade or help staff the booth! If you can, read on about being a parade monitor.

Our booth at the Waterfront Park festival will introduce Oregonians to our policies and to the 2020 Democratic candidates.

Give people the chance to register people to vote! It’s really fun to interact with Pride-goers and important for our party to be present at this party!
