Governor Jared Polis, the nation’s first openly gay governor, will serve as one of the five grand marshals leading the 2019 Coors Light Denver PrideFest Parade. Polis joins First Gentleman Marlon Reis, State Representative Brianna Titone, Mardi Moore, Executive Director of Out Boulder County and Drag Performer Peppermint.
The Coors Light Denver Pride Parade serves as the centerpiece of Denver PrideFest, which takes place June 15-16 in Civic Center Park. Typically attracting more than 100,000 spectators, the parade steps off at 9:30 am on Sunday June 16 and marches from Cheesman Park to the festival at Civic Center via Colfax. This year’s PrideFest pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which launched the contemporary LGBTQ civil rights movement.
