Cincinnati Pride is committed to making our parade and festival accessible for everyone, including those with disabilities. As an organization, we aspire to create an environment that is both inclusive and welcoming to all. We work to remove any barriers that may prevent people with disabilities from fully participating in our events.

Cincinnati Pride has been partnering with the Center for Independent Living Options to make our 2024 Parade and Festival more accessible for attendees with disabilities. The following are new accessibility measures that will be present this year:

  • Momentum Refresh Bus Universal Changing Station and Restroom: Pride is partnering with Hamilton County Developmental Disability Services to host the Momentum Refresh Bus. Momentum Refresh is the nation’s first fully accessible, universally designed mobile restroom. The bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift, customizable grab bars, an overhead ceiling hoist, and a height-adjustable sink and universal changing table.
  • Accessible Water Stations: Pride will have 60 access points for free drinking water at the festival. They are using Quench Buggy water refill stations, which are ADA compliant and multi-level.
  • Drinking Straws: For anyone who needs one, drinking straws made of recycled plastic will be provided by Pride.
  • Accessible Restrooms Along the Parade Route: Pride is partnering with local businesses along the parade route to make their ADA accessible restrooms available to the public for use during the parade.
  • Accessible Restrooms at the Festival: Pride is increasing the number of ADA accessible porta potties this year.
  • Accessible Restrooms at the Parade Staging Area: There will be ADA accessible porta potties at the Staging Area of the parade.
  • ADA Accessible Seating to View Parade at Fountain Square: This seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Accessible Maps: Printed and digital versions of festival maps will be available at Guest Services, HQ, and Water Stations. The printed map has a QR code with braille, which opens the digital version on the phone. The digital map is accessible to screen reader users.
  • American Sign Language Interpreters: ASL interpreters will be present at Main Stage, Tunnel Stage, Redgate Stage, Health & Wellness Zone, Sober Zone, and Guest Services Booth.
  • Service Animals/Animal Assistants: There will be a designated relief area for service animals/animal assistants.
