Where to Party for Pride in Seattle

WC Pride Street Party 

June 11, Saturday
White Center 

Quirky, independent White Center, which feels like Seattle but is technically unincorporated in King County, has always done things it is way, extending to Pride. They're running a pretty sweet indie street party: Show up in the general downtown vicinity to enjoy vendor stalls, beer gardens, live entertainment, and a giant balloon chain like you always see in pix of Coachella. Plus, there's that elite killer stand, like Coachella, at 15th and 98th. It's like Coachella, except you can walk everywhere because it's not 120 degrees. And it's free.


Kremwerk Pride Week 2022 

June 22 to 26, Wednesday to Sunday
Kremwerk, Downtown Seattle | $70 - $80

Kremwerk's celebrating for (almost) a week this year, with six crazy nights of Pride events, including queens, kings, live music, all-night raves, and generalized gay shit happening inside their spooky neon-industrial rabbit warren behind the corned beef place. Performers include Aja, Alexander, The Great C Powers, Cucci, Flammable, Lust Sick Puppy, Plack Blague, Sharlese, w00dy, and about 700 million more.

Cuff Pride Festival

June 24 to 26, Friday to Sunday
Cuff Complex, Capitol Hill | $35 - $100

Admission includes certain parts of the Cuff Festival, but they are two separate entities in that the Cuff Pride Festival is zeroing in on music and not drag queens. But you can, if you want, buy tickets to only the Cuff's fest and skip the queens. The festivals are dating and appear together in public sometimes, but they still go out solo. It's healthy. Highlights of this roster are synth-goth darlings Boy Harsher,  local rock 'n' roll legends Thunderpussy, RuPaul's Drag Race fan favorite Yara Sofia, and British dance clubbers Horse Meat Disco—whose name, btw, is a truncated version of a headline the band once spotted: "Horse Meat Disco…vered in Salami." Ha ha, that is funny.

Queer/Pride Festival 

June 24 to 26, Friday to Sunday
Queer Bar, Capitol Hill | $140 - $280

This event is like if the Capitol Hill Block Party were mostly dragged queens and held indoors. Up on the Hill, Queer/Bar and the Cuff will be welcoming wave after wave of queens and live bands all weekend, with passes available in single- or multi-day flavors. Musical headliners include Princess Nokia, Kim Petras, the controversial Iggy Azalea, and Seattle-based acts Thunderpussy and Chong the Nomad, with Drag Race alumni Crystal Methyd, Laganja Estranja, LaLa Ri, Adore Delano, Kornbread, Heidi N Closet, and (our local girl) Bosco presiding.

Wildrose Pride

June 24 to 26, Friday to Sunday
Wildrose, Capitol Hill | $0 - $35

Starting on Friday, Wildrose Pride is back after a multi-year covid hiatus with a three-day lineup of DJs and bands, somehow distinct from the Capitol Hill PrideFest  LIKE  ADD TO A LIST, it'll be fully simmering in. Notably, they'll be teaming up with indie radio station KEXP on Sunday to kick out the super-curated, high-level jams by your favorite on-air jockeys, and admission that day is whatever you feel like donating. The roster includes Adra Boo, Summersoft, Brittany Davis, DJ Skiddle, and Mr. Charming, among many more.

PrideFest Capitol Hill 

June 25, Saturday
Cal Anderson Park, Capitol Hill

If the Hill is ground zero for Pride (it is), this event is the very nucleus of the nuclear bomb. Its blast zone is enormous, too, covering Capitol Hill Station Plaza, all of Broadway between John and Roy Streets, and Cal Anderson Park AND neighboring Bobby Morris Playfield–with the fallout almost certainly permeating the whole neighborhood. It will be a square-mile rainbow street party with performers and music and beer gardens and vendors and people dressing outlandishly. A time to wear your sluttiest outfit and your most complicated headdress. Wear them both at once, actually, please. This year's theme is "We're Still Here," Matt Baume notes, "a tidy little Sondheim reference."

Seattle Dyke March 

June 25, Saturday
Seattle Central College, Capitol Hill

Over on the Seattle Central Campus, the Seattle Dyke March will be marching amidst a passel of speakers, artists, and performers–all intending to empower lesbians, queers, feminists, and the community. It's not clear where exactly they'll be marching from the website, but they've done 29 of these things so far, so suffice it to say that they're good at it. And here's Matt Baume with a tip: "All are welcome at this annual rally, and although the bikes are a highlight, they're not a requirement — you can always just ride a friend."

Taking Black Pride: Seachella 2022   

June 25, Saturday
Mural Amphitheatre, Uptown

Our favorite event name in the bunch, "Taking B(l)ack Pride," has moved from Jimi Hendrix Park to the Seattle Center's outdoor Mural Amphitheater this year and will be spotlighting BIPOC trans and queer artists from the U.S. and Canada. Created in response to overwhelmingly white and gay-only pride celebrations, Taking B(l)ack Pride aims to empower BIPOC transgender, queer, and gender-diverse communities to express emotion, culture, and society. As with previous festivals, white allies who attend are asked for a donation toward reparations as a nod of respect to the people who are the festival's focus. Makes sense!

Seattle Pride Parade   

June 26, Sunday
Westlake Park, Pike Pine Retail Core

Well, you can't miss the Seattle Pride Parade. No, seriously, you can't miss it; with 200 groups participating and half a million spectators, it's the biggest pride parade in the state and swallows up most of downtown Seattle. (Officially, it runs only half of the length of downtown, but then the southern half is considered the "staging area.”) Shit gets started officially at Fourth and Pike, at the tippy triangle point of Westlake Park. It ends at Second and Denny, at the main entrance to the Pacific Science Center—with at least three stages and four beverage gardens along the way to keep the works lubricated. Hit PrideFest  LIKE  ADD TO A LIST after to keep the party going.
