Space in the parade is very limited. Due to the high level of interest in parade participation, we use an adjudicated system for selecting participants.
A Participant Application is required from any person, group or other association seeking to participate in the Delaware Pride Parade (a “Participant”). This includes, but is not limited to, commercial, business related, trade, charitable, non-profits, for profits, clubs, lodges, bars, religious, industrial, associations, political elected officials or political parties. The Delaware Pride Parade is open to varying types of parade “units” such as floats and/or motorized unites, marching and/or performing units and walking units.
The primary function of this Participant Application is for the Delaware Pride Parade Committee to understand and attempt to incorporate Participants into the Delaware Pride Parade where possible. Types and quantity of Participants will be determined based upon, among other things, space available, variety, and/or the appropriateness as it relates to the purpose of the Delaware Pride Parade.
The Delaware Pride Parade Committee has the right to accept or reject any Participant Application and to approve all units including themes, music, signs, costumes and/or other paraphernalia that may be used by a Participant in the Delaware Pride Parade. The Delaware Pride Parade Committee reserves the right to deny a spot in the Delaware Pride Parade to any Participant who is, unwilling to abide by the Rules and Regulations outlined below, sign Hold Harmless Agreement, care for facilities appropriately, respect staff, or respect the public. Participants are expected to represent positive community values consistent with the event theme and purpose.
Upon submission of a completed Participant Application, the Delaware Pride Parade Committee will perform an initial screening based upon the submitted application. You will be notified if the Delaware Pride Parade Committee requires additional information and/or documentation in order to consider your Participant Application. All requested information must be received before a Participant Application will proceed to final review by the Delaware Pride Parade Committee. Once the review process is complete, you will be notified by e-mail (or other preferred method of contact) as to whether your Participant Application has been accepted or denied.
