LA Pride 6/11
The 53rd annual LA Pride Parade and LA Pride Village returns to Hollywood on Sunday, June 11th! Check out maps, street closure, and parking information below. Both events are free and, with the Village happening just outside of Amoeba, there's a full day of fun and celebration to be had for all! Come for the festivities and stick around to shop our vast selection of music, movies, books, t-shirts and more.
Amoeba Hollywood will be open 11am-9pm on Sunday, June 11th. There will be street closures around the store due to the Pride Village. If you are driving, your best bet will be to approach the store from the south. The entrance to the El Centro parking garage on Argyle Blvd, just half a block south of the store, will be open as usual that day. As always, we validate for the El Centro parking garage for 75 minutes with purchase. Or take the metro! The Hollywood/Vine stop on the metro B (red line) is directly across the street from Amoeba.
The LA Pride Parade will take place between 11am-1pm, beginning at Sunset Blvd and Highland Ave heading north, then east onto Hollywood Blvd, then south onto Cahuenga Blvd, ending at Sunset Blvd and Cahuenga Blvd. Margaret Cho will be honored as the Icon Grand Marshal, the ACLU SoCal will be this year’s Community Grand Marshal, and a new category, Legacy Grand Marshal, will honor and celebrate the life of Leslie Jordan.
The LA Pride Village kicks off after the LA Pride Parade, with festivities happening from 12pm - 8pm on Hollywood Blvd between Vine and Gower. There will be a local vendor market, activities, food & drinks, and two stages with entertainment from Mariachi Arcoiris, the Gay Freedom Band LA, Secret Circus, Dance Church, Gay Asstrology, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, LA’s favorite queer AAPI drag party, Send Noodz and more.
