This week is the beginning of Vancouver Pride 2016 and it should come as no surprise that our picks come from the long list of events happening this week. Want more Pride fun? Be sure to check out our complete Guide to Vancouver Pride 2016.
Vancouver Pride Week kicks off with the City of Vancouver Pride Proclamation. This year the festivities move from City Hall to the brand new Jim Deva Plaza (Davie & Bute Streets) in the heart of the Davie Village beginning at 11:30am.
The Davie Street Party is back on Friday, July 29 as Pride takes over the streets of the Davie Village from Burrard to Jervis Streets. Along with an expanded beer garden, the evening festivities include a community stage at the rainbow crosswalk at Davie & Bute.
No big surprise here that our third pick this week is the annual Vancouver Pride Parade and Sunset Beach Festival. The 38th annual Vancouver Pride Parade kicks off at noon on Sunday, July 31 and winds its way through the streets of Vancouver’s West End. The day continues at Sunset Beach with the Sunset Beach Festival with an always exciting line-up of performers, and a great mix of booths offering up a diverse range of a products, services, and community organizations.
