Vendor Opportunities

Summer 2023 application information for vendors, info booth holders and food services

Are you a local business, non-profit or artisan that aligns with Vancouver Pride? We want to hear from you!

Applications are open for booth holders and food trucks at the following events:

East Side Pride – Saturday June 24th, 2023

Located at the site of the historic Stonewall Festival (Grandview Park), join us for an afternoon filled with family activities, local queer talent and to connect with resources and fellow artisans. .

This event space is accessible by foot, bike, mobility devices and transit, with multiple gender accessible washrooms onsite. ASL interpretation of live performances is provided. East Side Pride is a sober event.

Vancouver Pride Festival – Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August, 2023

Join us for our signature event that attracts over 50,000 attendees on Pride Weekend! Hosting multiple stages, licensed outdoor bars, 100+ vendors in the market area and with its proximity to the annual Celebration of Light in downtown Vancouver, this festival is the place to be before or after the world-renowned Vancouver Pride Parade. In addition to extending the festival hours, we will have some more exciting updates to announce shortly!

Vendor Updates 2023


Early bird application period and approval timeline

Submit your application before January 15th 2023 to receive a discounted rate on  booth space. Don’t worry if you haven’t received an approval notice by that date, the discount will still be applied on your invoice. 

Approved vendors will be notified in May.



We have upgraded our payment system! Invoices will now be sent electronically with instructions on how to pay your invoice online. Alternative payment options are available.



You may be wondering why we are taking longer than usual to confirm your event registration. Some changes are on the horizon for our events this summer, including some new locations. We’ll have more details to announce in the Spring!


As of 2023, we will no longer be allowing balloons or single use plastic bags on site. Information on the current by-law restrictions for shopping bags, cups, straws, utensils and takeout containers can be found here. Please help us create a more environmentally sustainable festival!


The application deadline for festival exhibitors is June 22nd, 2023. Note that our festivals typically fill up much earlier than this deadline and that you will be added to our waitlist should we reach capacity.


Priority booth space will be allocated to artisans and community resource groups who actively serve local Two Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Trans, Queer, Asexual, Aromantic and Intersex folks in our community.
