2020 Salt Spring Pride Festival

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Salt Spring Pride has evolved into a weekend-long, mid-summer Pride Festival!

Mark your calendars: Thursday July 23rd through Sunday July 26th, we are hosting the Pride Festival at the historic Salt Spring Farmers Institute on Rainbow Road.

This new venue allows us to come together as a community to create a safe and creative space for queer people of all ages and our friends and families. We will head back into the world with new experiences, renewed energy, and with deeper connections to the amazing power and strength of our community. Come, and join in the co-creation of the Salt Spring Pride Festival 2020.

Alongside the annual Parade and Pride Dance on Saturday, July 25th, we be hosting new workshops, discussions, games, markets, music performances, and more opportunities to explore the things which are central to our identity, and to our lives in community.

Most excitingly, camping is available in the ‘Pride Village’, on the Farmer’s Institute grounds for those seeking a more immersive experience of the Pride Festival, and visiting friends and family from off-island.

Tickets will be available in the coming months, with and without camping.

As our exciting new venue brings with it a new date, please share this announcement with all your queer friends and allies. With your help we can make this the best Pride yet!
