Pride Guide: Advertise with Kelowna Pride

Get noticed and show your support for Kelowna Pride 2018

The Pride Guide is the program for Kelowna Pride (Aug 11-18) and will include a full listing of Pride events, greetings from government and community resources.

More than 1,500 copies of the guide will be printed and distributed, and will be available at all Pride week events and for download from
