Calgary Pride Festival
Celebrating 26 Years of Pride!
The annual Calgary Pride Festival celebrates our city's diverse and inclusive community, through a variety of events throughout the week. Join us for concerts, plays, parties, history walks, panel discussions, and the free signature Parade and Pride in the Park.
PARADE (9th Avenue, Sept 4 at noon)
The signature Calgary Pride Parade is one of the most colourful celebrations of the year! This family friendly parade sees upwards of 60,000 spectators as over 125 entries from community groups, corporations, politicians, churches and public services roll through the heart of downtown, and celebrates the tremendous diversity of Calgary's community.
PRIDE IN THE PARK (Shaw Millennium Park, Sept 4 at 1pm)
Immediately following the Parade, join us at Shaw Millennium Park for this massive free outdoor party, complete with live music from local, national and international performers, a marketplace of community groups and pride inspired merchandise, a selection of some of the best food trucks rolling the streets of Calgary, the Village Brewery beer gardens, and a family zone with crafts and activities for kids of all ages.
