Vancouver Pride Society is excited to announce its full schedule for the 2021 #ChooseYourPride celebrations. While acknowledging that Pride doesn’t look the same for all community members, the organization is hosting more than 60 events including in-person and digital experiences taking place July 3–August 3, 2021.
As one of the first in-person Summer festivals since COVID started in 2020, Vancouver Pride Society will bring the pandemic-friendly VanPrideFest to Jonathan Rogers Park in Mount Pleasant from July 30–August 1, 2021. The series of free open-air programming with community partners offers ten different time slots dedicated to the specificities of the local 2SLGBTQAI+ community.
For the first time this year, organizers are bringing a series of COVID-safe Pride Lounges to Vancouver Downtown, which will pop across from Jim Deva Plaza, Stanley Park Brewpub, and šxʷƛ̓ ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ Square at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Attendees will be able to book a time slot for up to six people within their bubble in advance and enjoy drinks under the summer sky with lounge-style entertainment.
Due to provincial COVID-19 Public Health Orders, Vancouver Pride has had to cancel its in-person Pride Parade extravaganza, which usually draws people from all over the country. Instead, the organization will be hosting a digital Decentralized Pride Parade Broadcast on August 1, 2021, encouraging viewers to celebrate with individual gatherings to take up space all around the city and connect with their communities.
Registration for live events is required, and can be done at vancouverpride.ca/tickets/
