COVID-19 Update for 2021
To our 2020 partners – THANK YOU for supporting our first ever VIRTUAL season. Over the past four decades, Vancouver Pride has built its organization around staging in person events. Last spring, in a matter of weeks, our team pivoted into content producers and created an impressive lineup of virtual events. During pride month, we streamed over 30 different events, with 50 hours of programming, showcasing 60 artists. As Covid-19 continues to impact our daily lives, connection is more important than ever in the months ahead.
PARTNER WITH PRIDE
Isolation and insecurity have created terrible hardship for members of our communities. This is why we are working on a hybrid season which will include online and in-person events. With sustained support from corporate partners, Vancouver Pride will continue to bring people together to celebrate and educate while paying marginalized artists and speakers for their work. By standing together in solidarity with corporate and government agencies, Vancouver Pride continues to be a recognizable force within the region.
While we are still developing our 2021 schedule with civic stakeholders, there are many exciting opportunities for sponsors during our core season (JULY) and off season. We are looking to create a hybrid of reimagined in-person events plus select virtual events. This will likely include multiple locations around the city offering different experiences over 4 to 5 days of Pride week. Our team is planning several outdoor “lounges” with bar service, pop up style stage with entertainment plus a walk-through festival experience.
Official Partners receive a feature program, and we will consult with you to customize it to meet your objectives. As always, event logistics are subject to health guidelines and we will keep our partners updated on any changes which may impact the 2021 season. Whether you are a big or small company, we would love to hear your ideas about getting involved in PRIDE.
