Pride Details

At the core of the celebration is the iconic Davie Street Party, a jubilant gathering that encapsulates the spirit of Vancouver's LGBTQ+ community. Davie Street, nestled in the West End and renowned as the historic hub of gay nightlife, transforms into an electrifying festival ground. This event stands as a testament to the area's rich legacy, housing the finest in queer nightlife, making it the perfect kickoff to Pride Week.

The inclusivity of the Davie Village is unparalleled, offering something for everyone. The event is held on Davie Street and welcomes attendees of all ages, free of charge, fostering a family-friendly atmosphere. As the evening unfolds, the vibe shifts to a 19+, ticketed celebration, catering to an adult crowd, ensuring the party continues well into the night.

Vancouver Pride is an extravaganza of inclusivity, featuring a myriad of events leading up to the grandeur of the Pride Parade. The parade itself is a spectacle of creativity and solidarity, starting from the crossroads of Denman and Davie streets, near the scenic English Bay. It weaves through the city for four kilometers (about 2.5 miles), along Beach Avenue and Pacific Street, showcasing a dazzling array of floats, dancers, and participants, each bringing their unique energy to the procession.

The festivities extend beyond the parade, with events like East Side Pride offering a family-friendly day out in Grandview Park near Commercial Drive, and The Picnic in the Park in Stanley Park providing a serene setting for community gathering. These events, among others, enrich the Pride experience, ensuring that every moment is filled with celebration, reflection, and community.
