11th Annual Veggie Pride Parade NYC
New York NY - The Veggie Pride Parade celebrates veganism and exercises the First Amendment rights of those who oppose violence against other animals.

Marching in the Veggie Pride Parade publicly affirms one's refusal to consume dead-animal bodies and live-animal secretions. With each step, participants denounce the view that other animals are merely objects and that exploiting and killing them is "normal."

All are welcome—whether vegan and or just vegan-curious—to join in the parade and in the festivities afterwards, which will include vegan speakers, animal-protection organizations, and networking opportunities. We look forward to seeing you there!

Veggie Pride Parade, now in its 11th year, is co-hosted by the Humane Party, a U.S. political party committed to rights, personhood, and political representation for all animals—not just the human kind.

We will line up at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 8th 2018 in the old meatpacking district at 9th Ave and Gansevoort Street (approx. 40 Gansevoort St.), just two short blocks south of W. 14th Street. (The launch of the parade begins at noon sharp, but please arrive early to build the "buzz" and "attention"!)

Parade participants are encouraged to dress up in costumes and carry sign boards announcing their pride in their vegan lifestyle. The brighter, wilder, and bigger the better! We are making noise! Local restaurants, veg groups, and veg everything will be represented with banners and chants.

The parade route runs from the Old Meat District to Union Square Park (North Plaza), New York, NY, and ends at approximately 12:45 p.m. with a fun and exciting festival of music, food, speakers, and exhibitors from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

At 2 p.m., a costume contest took place.

Throughout the day, individuals will be encouraged to speak their mind at the Soapbox Testimonial Station. Other activists will beckon passersby to receive a dollar in return for watching a pro-veg video.

The organizers of the 2018 Veggie Price Parade would like to thank founder and original coordinator Pamela Rice for her years of vision, determination and dedication towards making this event what it is today. May 2018 be our biggest, farthest reaching and most successful gathering ever!
