PRIDE WEEK & FESTIVAL
Become a friend of Pride. Contact us for partnership details.
SEPT 18 - 27, 2020
Join us for the largest Pride Festival in the BC Interior.
Kelowna Pride acknowledges that we serve our communities as visitors on the traditional territories of the Syilx-Okanagan peoples of the Interior Salish Nation.
Kelowna Pride first festivals began over 25 years ago. Since then, the festival has grown immensely, attracting over 12,000 people to be proud and celebrate love, diversity and inclusivity.
How can Pride happen during a pandemic?
We understand the concerns around this, but we assure you we are taking the appropriate steps to keep people safe and to ensure Pride can still happen. That said, Kelowna Pride 2020 won't look anything like previous festivals. We are following all of the appropriate guidelines from the province and Interior Health, and this means we must keep our gatherings SMALL and socially distanced.
What are you doing to protect people?
1. Max 50 patrons/participants in one space
What happens if I didn't register for an event or it is sold out?
You will NOT be able to participate in person. You MUST pre-register for any events that you want to attend (the only exception to this is the Pride Market). However, we are live streaming all of our official events on the Unicorns.LIVE platform. The Parades & the Festival are free to watch while there is a small charge to watch Kelowna's Next Drag Superstar. Check out the individual events (below) for the links to the live streams.
I don't feel safe attending any in-person events. What can I do?
We totally get it! That's why we are live streaming all of the official Kelowna Pride events. You can enjoy them, and celebrate Pride, from the safety and comfort of your own home. You can even watch them on your TV if you have an AppleTV or Amazon FireTV!
