In celebration and recognition of Calgary’s gender and sexually diverse community, the Calgary Pride Parade will take place on Sunday, September 3rd from 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM. This year's festival anticipates over 60,000 attendees and everyone is welcome to join.
Parade Begins at Noon
Departing from 6 Ave and 3 St SE, the parade will run west along 6 Ave, turn North onto 6 St and end at 3 Ave. From there, participants will continue walking onto Prince’s Island Park where the Pride in the Park event will immediately get underway.
There are many ways that you can get involved, from volunteering, to decorating the front of your business (Calgary Pride encourages you to post photos on their social media), or even just setting up a chair and taking in the event. The Parade and Pride in the Park are free, all-inclusive events.
