Every year, Twin Cities Pride works hard to ensure that the Loring Park festival grounds and Pride Parade route are accessible to people of all needs and abilities. We’ll update this list as more information becomes available.
ASL & Interpreter coordinator booth: At the park entrance of Grant and Willow.
Autism tent: There is an escape space near the garden in the Yellow Zone.
Bathrooms: ADA port-a-potties are located throughout the park.
Interpreters for stage performances: ASL interpreters will be posted for performances on the Loring Stage and the Stonewall stage. All other stages/performances can have interpretation arranged for our Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing guests by sending a request by June 15, to [email protected].
Lactation station: The Time of Birth lactation station and changing booth is number G29, near the canoe rides in the Green Zone.
Medical tents: First aid booths can be found in the Green Zone and Purple Zone.
Parade: There will be ASL interpreters and an ADA viewing location in front of the Convention Center near the VIP Seating area.
Parking: Handicap parking is reserved on West 15th Street and Maple Street. There is no parking on Harmon Street (this is different than in years’ past.)
PRIDE IN CONCERT
There are a limited number of ADA tickets available, which reserve space on a platform for wheelchair users. There will be an ADA port-a-potty available near this seating area. Tickets are available through the main ticketing link at tcpride.org/pride-in-concert
Note: There are large, grassy hill areas outside of the platform area which is located directly off of the walking path.
ASL interpreters will be available during Pride In Concert and there are tickets available for the viewing area near the interpreter at the same ticket link above.
Wheelchair charging and rental: At vendor central, near the Grant and Willow entrance on the east side of the park. There are a limited number of manual wheelchairs available for use on a first come first serve basis.
