About the Vancouver Pride Parade

2015 marks the 37th Anniversary of Pride in Vancouver
This year’s theme is Gender Super Heroes. Because being yourself and sharing who you really are, makes you an everyday super hero!
Super hero geek that I am, I’m looking forward to seeing some inventive costumes this year!

2015 Pride Grand Marshals

Remember to bring your sunscreen, a hat and water! Temperatures can run high on Parade day, so moderate exposure to the sun and stay hydrated! And if you, like me carry you camera with you, be aware that spontaneous water falls occur – be ready to shield your camera from a deluge. Put on you dancing shoes, because music features heavily along the parade route.
Vancouver Pride Parade Route:
The Pride Parade begins at Robson Street and Thurlow Street, heads west to Denman Street, follows Denman to Pacific Street and Beach Avenue and finishes at the Sunset Beach Festival site.

This year’s block party is exploding the beer garden and dropping the fences, with the party spilling out from the Community Stage at Davie Street’s historic Rainbow Crosswalk at Bute Street, where you can pound the pavement to some of the city’s hottest talent. The Davie Street Block Party is free and open to all ages, all genders and all bodies, but outdoor bar service is 19+ only, with a wristband purchased for $5.00 at one of our ticket booths.
