Community Events

Submit your events for the 2019 Pride Festival

Deadline: April 13, 2019

Register your 2019 Community Event

Feature your Community Event in this year’s Queen City Pride Festival programme and promotions. A Community Event is an officially recognized event or activity scheduled to take place during and for the Queen City Pride Festival and organized entirely or in part by community groups, non-profit organizations, or businesses. Any group or organization is welcome to submit their event for consideration and if approved, that event will be included in the festival’s official programming and promotions.

 

Complete and submit this form by April 13, 2019, to apply to have your Community Event included in the 2019 Queen City Pride Festival event lineup. Approved events will be promoted on our website, posters, and select events in the Official Queen City Pride Guide Book.

Event Submission Criteria

Submitting your event for the 2019 Queen City Pride Festival helps us follow and promote all of the activities taking place during the 10-day long festival.

When planning your event(s), we encourage you to take into consideration the needs of our community. Our goal as a community festival is to provide events that are open and accessible to everyone. Consider the following: gender-neutral washrooms, wheelchair and mobility accessibility, substance and alcohol-free spaces, no-cost and low-cost admission, sound amplification, proximity to bus stops, and the specific needs of your audience. If you’d like to talk to us about making your event more open and accessible to your audience, feel free to contact us.

While we do our best to promote as many Community Events taking place as possible, Regina Pride reserves the right to edit, add, or remove all or part of your event submission(s) in order to comply with our festival guidelines and anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies. Due to limited space in the Official Festival Pride Guide, we cannot guarantee that all event submissions will be printed. For event organizers with more than one event, we will be asking you to rank your events in order of priority to help us ensure your most important events are advertised first.

New Requirement for All Events

Regina Pride Inc. now requires that all Community Event Partners participate in “Positive Space Network” training, provided by the UR Pride Centre. Training sessions will be provided at no cost to you and will help ensure that all events taking place during the Queen City Pride Festival meet the demand for safer, braver spaces in our community.

— For events being hosted by an individual: the individual must take part in training.
— For events being hosted by a group/organization: a minimum of two people (who are involved in planning and present at the event) must take part in training.
— An individual can only represent a single group/organization at training
—–Example: “Samantha” is hosting Pride events for both the “Queer Badminton League” and “GSA Chess Club” but cannot represent both organizations at training. The “Queer Badminton League” and “GSA Chess Club” will have to send at least 2 people without overlap.
