The Festival in the Park, returning to City Park, on June 22, 2019 will include a vendor fair. Sell your goods, promote your organization or serve some eats to the crowd. Tentative schedule is:
- 8am-11am: Set-up
- 11-4pm: Festival in full force—sell, sell, sell!
- 4-6pm: Take down
Vendor opportunities are still available and can be purchased online! Support Pride by decorating your storefront or downloading and displaying a 2019 Merchant Welcome Sign (PDF) during Pride week (coming soon).
The Pride Guide is the program for Kelowna Pride (June 15-22) and will include a full listing of Pride events, greetings from government and community resources.
The Pride Guide offers businesses a chance to advertise directly to the growing LGBT2Q+ communities, as well as their friends, family and allies. And it’s not just a great marketing opportunity; it’s a chance to let the Okanagan know that you support the positive social change that Pride stands for.
1,000 copies of the guide will be printed and distributed, as well as available at all Pride week events. In 2018, Kelowna Pride piloted an online version that was equally as popular as the print version. A online digital version will be utilized again in 2019.
PURCHASE YOUR SPACE NOW! Deadline to purchase your ad space is April 30, 2019!
Details about Guide Ad Specs available here.
Wanna strut your stuff selling drink tickets? How about flexing your cleanup muscles and help us tear down after an event. We’re on the lookout to fill numerous volunteer positions during Pride week.
Positions will be posted on Do Some Good soon!
