Road closures in Salt Lake City announced for the 2024 Utah Pride Festival

Several city streets will be temporarily closed from June 1 to June 2 for Utah Pride Week.

Salt Lake City police officers have reminded the community that the annual Pride Festival will take place in Washington Square from 11 a.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Various roads near the City and Province Building will be completely or partially closed all weekend. These include 200 East, between 400 South and 500 South, which closed Friday as crews began setting up for the festival.

Officers have advised drivers to be extra careful on the roads during the two-day event as approximately 100,000 people are expected to attend the Utah Pride Festival. Community members are encouraged to carpool, use public transportation or use a ride-hailing service when traveling downtown.

The Pride Parade starts at 10 a.m. Sunday at 100 South West Temple and will travel east on 100 South, go south on 400 East, go west on 700 South and end at 700 South 200 East.

Police have also shared their commitment to investigating hate crimes and holding those who commit them accountable to ensure justice for survivors.
