Festival & Parade
Thank-you for your interest in our Parade and Festivals.
Due to COVID-19, Vancouver Pride is going to look a little different in 2020.
Pride is more than a parade or a festival -it is a feeling, not a physical space- which is why Pride can not be cancelled, only re-imagined. Connection is more important than ever this year. Isolation and insecurity have created terrible hardship for members of our communities. This is why we are proud to announce a digital line-up of events which enable us to come together and celebrate while paying marginalized artists, performers and suppliers for their work. This includes the creation of a fully virtual Pride Parade in partnership with DailyHive!

The 2020 Vancouver Virtual Pride Parade will feature a combination of photo and video submissions sent in by participating organizations. A Live Stream will be held on August 2, 2020 featuring an hour-long, professional live stream event edited by DailyHive. With live hosts and activities planned throughout to keep audiences engaged, the Vancouver Virtual Pride Parade followed by a virtual Sunset Beach Main Stage Show will feature the high quality entertainment you have come to expect from our festival.
