Calgary gay pride 2018
It’s the most colourful event of the year!
2018 brings forth the 28th iteration of the annual Calgary Pride Parade – the signature event that colours all of downtown Calgary with rainbows and smiles! Originally a small march of gay Calgarians, some of whom wore masks and bags over their faces to protect from persecution, the event has grown in leaps and bounds to become the second biggest parade in Calgary.
Today, Calgary Pride welcomes non profit organizations, businesses big and small, politicians, political parties, churches, unions, and more, all to come together and celebrate Calgary’s diversity.
This incredible gathering of inclusive and diverse organizations draws tens of thousands of spectators each year, and showcases the diversity of Calgary’s community.
