2018 East Side Pride


2018 East Side Pride

Celebrate Pride on the East Side! The annual East Side Pride festival is returning to Grandview Park this June 23rd. This year, we have a stellar line-up of local performers, a public dance and frisbee lesson, over 30 vendors and Community Partners, and two food trucks! Grab a blanket, grab some sunscreen, grab some folks and get ready to enjoy an afternoon in the sun.

Take part in Dance in Transit's Dance Lesson, Ultimate Frisbee with Rain City Ultimate Club, the Instant Sister Photobooth with the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Button-Making and more! In addition to fun, child-friendly activities run by VPS, Grandview Park features a playground and water park.

Access Information:

If you require any assistance related to accessibility or have any questions please contact accessibility@vancouverpride.ca.

Accessible gender neutral portapotties are available in addition to the park's accessible washrooms which will be de-gendered for the festival.

ASL Interpretation will be provided by Laine, Denise, and Kirsten.

A shaded space with chairs will be provided with sight-line access to view ASL Interpretation. A second shaded space will be provided close to the path for people using mobility devices and vision loss.

The park has paved pathways on an incline.

We are excited to premiere The Magic Of Drag Tactile Tent this year at East Side Pride in partnership with VocalEye and Tuck Entertainment Inc.! This experience is inclusive to all, with a focus on those with vision loss, sensory issues and people living with disabilities.

Visitors are invited to feel wigs and tactile fabrics with the fabulous Karmella Barr, the last Reigning Miss Cobalt (Miss Cobalt 6). She is Vancouver's Chocolate Queen and she hopes you have a sweet tooth because she is ready to fill all of your sweet sugar needs.
