Edmonton Gay Pride 2014

The Edmonton Pride Festival Society will showcase the unity and diversity of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-identified and queer (LGBTQ) community and its allies. The Society has been given responsibility by its members, representatives from community groups and businesses for strategic planning, organizing, coordinating resources and the execution of a Pride Festival for the capital region.

Edmonton’s first Pride celebration took place in 1980, and has grown from a small celebration of 75 people who enjoyed a baseball game followed by a campfire. Events added in the past 29 years have included rallies and fairs, poetry readings, art shows, picnics, croquet tournaments, baseball games, a film festival, the parade and Celebration on the Square.
