April 30, 2024 – (KEY WEST, FL).  The Key West Business Guild is pleased to announce registration is now open for the highly anticipated Key West Pride 2024 Parade, this year celebrating the Golden Era of 1970s Disco.  The parade will be held on Sunday, June 9th at 5:00 p.m., originating from the quayside at Truman Waterfront Park.  Participants will then proceed up Whitehead Street toward the waterfront then working its way down Duval Street.  Floats of all types will be accepted – cars, trailers, walking groups – with all participants encouraged to embrace the disco theme.

Each year Key West Pride, a five-day event, celebrates the amazing contribution the LGBTQ community makes to our island’s diverse “One Human Family”.  Disco was a defining era for the LGBTQ community, and the culture exploded with amazing style and pageantry.  It wasn’t long until Disco became a worldwide sensation influencing every aspect of society.

“Put on your Boogie Shoes, get the glitter balls ready, and dust off your bellbottoms for this year’s annual parade,” says Rob Dougherty, Executive Director of the Key West Business Guild.  “Our goal for this year’s Pride Parade is to create a ‘Love Train’ as the parade floats travel down Duval Street and to see our community dancing in the street.  Once the parade finishes on the 1300 block, we want everyone to head to LaTeDa for a Disco Tea Dance.”

Entry for the Pride Parade is free, although the Business Guild requests a small donation of $20 to offset the cost of logistics.  The registration application is easy – visit or call the Key West Business Guild office on 305-294-4630.
