2018 marks the 29th anniversary of the annual Queen City Pride Parade – our signature event that fills Regina’s downtown with rainbows, smiles, and pride. Our first march took place on the sidewalks, with some participants wearing masks and paper bags over their faces to protect themselves from persecution. Today, the Queen City Pride Parade has grown to become one of Regina’s most colourful and recognized parades.

Queen City Pride welcomes you to come together and celebrate Regina’s gender and sexually diverse community. We encourage you to line the Parade Route as our fabulous spectators or join the parade through our online registration. Registration is mandatory for community groups, non-profit organizations, businesses, politicians and political parties, unions, churches, and other formal groups.

Parade staging begins at 10:00 am.

The Parade will begin at 12:00 pm.
