Montréal Pride will offer an alternative Pride
Following the announcement by the Government of Québec on April 10, that festivals will not be held until August 31, it is with a heavy heart that we must cancel the Pride Parade, the Community Day as well as all programming at Parc des Faubourgs and offsite.
We wish to reassure the sexual and gender diversity communities, for whom the Montréal Pride team has been working hard for the past few weeks to offer them a different and creative festival that respects social distancing measures! An alternative program of celebrating our LGBTQ+ communities will be offered in the coming weeks.
Keep the date from August 10 to 16 in your agenda reserved for a unique 2020 Pride… from home!
On March 11, the Montréal Pride festival team received the 2020 Distinction Award – Destination Promotion, notably for its candidacy, at the 2019 InterPride Annual General Meeting in Athens, as host city of WorldPride 2023.
This prestigious award, bestowed in recognition of our contribution to the development and influence of the Montréal tourism product in 2019, reminds us of how proud we are to be at the heart of this industry with our members and partners.
The alternative Montréal Pride Festival 2020 starts in
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather for Montréal Pride is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk). The island called “Montréal” is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and it is a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations, including the Algonquin people.
