Memorial Memorial Park Pride is a two day, multi-generational, inclusive, accessible and educational event kicking off Pride Week in Central Memorial Park, a prominent landmark in Calgary’s queer history. This celebration includes performances from local artists, family friendly activities hosted by community groups, and workshops as diverse as our community, all free to attend.
Pride in the Park is Calgary Pride’s post-parade celebration and cultural festival where you can enjoy delicious food from our array of food trucks, experience live entertainment at our MAIN STAGE while sippin’ a cold one over in the VILLAGE BEER GARDEN, or maybe change it up with a burlesque show and more at our PALM BAY LOUNGE. Dance barefoot in the grass, peruse the MARKETPLACE, reconnect with your best self at our WELLNESS OASIS, treat your taste buds to food from Calgary’s finest FOOD TRUCKS! And of course make a toast to a beautiful, diverse and inclusive city!
The signature Calgary Pride Parade is one of the most colourful celebrations of the year!This family friendly parade sees upwards of 75,000 spectators as over 200 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.
