It’s a highlight of summer in Vancouver, and one of the most diverse festivals in the city. The Vancouver Pride Society will host over 50 Pride events throughout the season and none draws as many people as the legendary, inclusive, and super fun 41st annual Vancouver Pride Parade!

The parade will travel from Thurlow, down Robson St towards Denman. It will turn left on Denman all the way to Beach Ave and flow into the Sunset Beach Festival.
“A celebration. A protest. A party.” The diverse and colourful Pride Parade is a staple of the Vancouver summer calendar, and with 100+ parade entries, there will lots of amazing floats you won’t want to miss.
