Victoria Pride Week #yyjevents @VictoriaPride

2018 Victoria Pride Week is quickly approaching, and it’s going to be another great week of events culminating with the Victoria Pride Parade and Festival on July 8th.

Here’s a quick look at some of the highlites:

July 1: The Annual Memorial Dragball Game
Vic West Ball Park @ Bay St & Wilson, across from Save on Foods

July 8:  The Victoria Pride Parade and The Victoria Pride Festival in MacDonald Park. The parade begins at the corner of Pandora and Government, continuing south on Government, turning west on Belleville and then south on Menzies until turning west at Kingston; parade moves south on Oswego ending at MacDonald Park at the corner of Oswego and Simcoe.


Complete list of events HERE

Society’s mission is based on empowerment. We empower those who are – or think they might be – gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirited, intersex, friends and allies.

Victoria Pride WeekThe Victoria Pride Society was born from a casual picnic in Beacon Hill Park over 20 years ago. Since the time of its creation, the Victoria Pride Society has focused on supporting the inclusiveness, accessibility, and diversity of Pride Week events. Today, we are one of a few national Pride Societies who encourage all people to walk the Pride parade route – generating thousands of people ‘proudly’ walking the streets of Victoria for themselves, colleagues, or loved ones.

As our community, sponsors, and supporters grow, so too does the opportunity to share who we are, where we come from, and most importantly, our personal pride. Being ‘proud’ transcends any one week of any given year. Being ‘proud’ is an achievement garnered throughout a lifetime. The Victoria Pride Society is here to provide support, connection, education, and celebration for every individual in their own quest to be proud.
