Festival & Parade
Applications are now open for the 2022 Parade!
When: Sunday July 31st, 2021 @ 12pm – 3pm
Where: Vancouver’s West End starting on Robson Street, right on Denman St, and another right on Beach Avenue. The Parade ends beside the Sunset Beach festival site.
We are very hopeful that we will be able to host the 44th Annual Pride Parade in person in 2022! We are cautiously planning for it to be one of the best Prides yet while adhering to the Provincial Health Guidelines and the advice from our Public Health Officers.
