CityWell at Durham PRIDE: Meet at Duke Memorial UMC at 9:30 am, Sat 9/24


Duke Memorial UMC

504 W. Chapel Hill St

Durham, NC 27701

Duke Memorial UMC has offered their parking lots to us and to other UMC marchers; Duke Memorial will also serve as our meeting spot. Please plan to arrive at Duke Memorial by 9:30 am, carpooling if you can; we will then walk together with the other UMC marchers to our designated parade starting location, which will take about 15 minutes. All marchers must be at the starting location by 10 am. The parade will begin shortly after at 10:30 am.


If for any reason you need to park closer, there are a number of lots available. Nearby locations that have offered up additional public parking for Pride are:

  • Ashbury UMC
  • Epworth Lane at Duke
  • Brodie Gym Drive at Duke
  • Broad St. Duke lot

If you use one of these alternative lots, please make sure to arrive at the parade lineup by 10 am. You should be able to find CityWell marchers along the corner of W Main St and N Buchanan Blvd.

Folks needing close accessibility parking can park in the two designated ADA parking lots located alongside Gilbert-Addoms building on Duke’s East Campus. There will be volunteers (in pink shirts) with golf carts on hand to help ferry people from the accessibility lots to the Parade and the Festival.


  • CityWell will have a vehicle in the Parade. Marchers will move forward with the vehicles as they are lined up to enter the Parade.
  • We will have rainbow flags and rainbow masks for all marchers who would like
  • Bring whatever you need to be comfortable for the 2-mile route. Sunscreen, water, comfy shoes, etc. There will be refillable water stations at the festival
  • The Parade and all Pride festivities are rain or shine!
