2019 Parade Entries

New in 2019


The Vancouver Pride Parade continues to grow in terms of the number and size of applicant entries. For the past 3 years, there has been a waiting list to get into the parade and some entrants have been turned away.


In order to facilitate more groups participating, there will be a limit to the number of marchers and vehicles. The maximum number of marchers that will be permitted are 200. The number and size of vehicles per entry will be reviewed by the Parade Working Group.


Parade Applicant Criteria


The Parade Working Group (A voluntary committee of community members) reviews each application to determine if the group, organization or company has policies in place around sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, a values alignment with VPS and demonstrates that they support the LGBTQAI2S+ community throughout the year both with internal resources and externally in the community at large. Be sure to fill these sections of the application out completely.


Make sure you include a description of your parade entry to let the Parade Working Group know how you are going to make your entry relevant, fun and visually stimulating.


Refund Policy


The 2018 Refund Policy has been amended to include a grace period where parade entrants who request a refund between 60 and 90 days from the event date will receive a refund of 50% of their parade entry fee. No refunds will be issued within 60 days of the event.
