Metro Transit makes it easy to enjoy the fun and festivities of one of the largest Pride celebrations in the Midwest at PrideFest 2019 in downtown St. Louis this weekend, June 29 and June 30.
Festival-goers can avoid road construction, street closures, downtown traffic and searching for parking issue by leaving their vehicle at any one of 21 free Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in Illinois and Missouri, and riding to the Union Station or Civic Center MetroLink Stations. Both stations are located just a few blocks south of the festival grounds near Soldiers Memorial. MetroBus is also a great option to reach PrideFest. Festival-goers can catch any one of 18 MetroBus routes to the Civic Center Transit Center, located at 14th and Spruce, just south of Soldiers Memorial.
PrideFest 2019 runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. The Grand Pride Parade starts on noon on Sunday, June 30, and runs on Market Street between 10th and 17th Streets.
