No big surprise here that our third pick this week is the annual Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival.

Vancouver Pride 2014 is fast approaching and as we’re fond of saying around here, it is never too early to start thinking about the biggest and gayest event on Vancouver’s social calendar.

In 2014, Vancouver Pride Week officially begins July 28 with the proclamation at City Hall and culminates with the Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival on August 3.  Along with the events that take place during Pride Week, there are also a number of events in the weeks ahead of Pride.

East Side Pride returns to Grandview Park on June 28, as a tribute to the Stonewall Riots and celebration of East Vancouver’s LGBTQ community.

Gay Day at Playland also returns with a day at the amusement park for the LGBTQ commmunity on July 19.  Show your colours by wearing red and enjoy a day of rids, drag queens and other activities.

The annual Picnic in the Park is at Brockton Oval on July 26 with a day of both family-friendly games plus entertainment and a beer garden. That same day the Vancouver Frontrunners holds its Pride Walk and Run.

Pride with the Whitecaps takes place July 27 as Vancouver’s Whitecaps Football Club take on their Dallas rivals in this second annual match.  Bring your Pride flags and make some noise!  Use code PRIDEVAN to get the deal.
