Pick out a choice spot early, and join tens of thousands of spectators and hundreds of participants in this year’s parade. The 27th annual event will kick off on Upper Water Street, before winding its way down Barrington, up Spring Garden Road to South Park and ending at Sackville Street. The largest parade of its kind in the region will feature community groups, businesses and a few familiar Halifax faces, all decked-out and celebrating the “Once Upon a Pride” theme.

Hot time, summer in the city. Why not cool off with a refreshing dip in a gender-inclusive pool? Trans Connect’s All-Bodies Swim will offer just that, providing a positive environment where trans, intersex, queer and gender-variant folks can dive in while free from scrutiny or exclusion. Change rooms and attire are entirely your choice. Children and allies are welcome.
