Every event strives to educateentertain, and enlighten participants on our sexual and gender diverse community. The Queen City Pride Festival takes place during the month June, along with Prince Albert Pride, Saskatoon Pride, Moose Jaw Pride, and Swift Current Pride. These festivals take place during Saskatchewan’s “Pride Month”, as proclaimed by the Government of Saskatchewan each year.
