It’s nearly that time again! Calgary Pride 2023 is just around the corner and like so many before it, this year will be a celebration, a statement and a golden opportunity to mingle, mix, educate yourselves and show your support for the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

The city’s most vibrant festival, Pride will take place from August 26th to September 4th, 2023 and feature a ton of programming – some of which has yet to be announced.

Luckily, some of your favourites will return – including the annual Pride Festival, a HUGE event that will kick off on Saturday, September 2nd.

Located in Prince’s Island Park, a massive stage will welcome headliners Synthia Kiss, Kendall Gender and the Bratpack, alongside local talent and DJs – but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

During this time, guests can relax in the beer or sober gardens, grab a bite at the food trucks or wander the market – but don’t forget to make way for the parade!
