WINDSOR-ESSEX PRIDE FEST MOVES TO OTTAWA STREET, 2018 Windsor-Essex Pride Fest

2022 Windsor-Essex Pride Fest

Since its humble beginning as a small march of about 100 people in Windsor back in 1992, the Pride Festival has become one of our community’s most anticipated cultural attractions.

We are now celebrating our 30th anniversary year of producing our annual festival on August 5—7, 2022, which is one of the region’s largest and a host of numerous year-round social programs and activities. Our events, programs and activities contribute to the vibrancy, health and well-being of Two Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) residents in Windsor-Essex and as a result, strengthen the community overall.

The Windsor-Essex Pride Fest aims to promote equality and diversity through all of its events. We use theatre, music, art and entertainment to raise awareness of discrimination and the issues affecting the lives of 2SLGBTQIA+ people.

Our festival is an explosion of Pride in the heart of the Windsor, attracting approximately 7,000 people in a celebration of diversity. Through this we aim to promote a sentiment in favour of equality, uniting people in a celebrative atmosphere where all are welcome, and fostering a sense of community within the Windsor-Essex 2SLGBTQIA+ population.

Year after year we move society closer to ending discrimination by bringing diverse audiences together to raise awareness of today’s ongoing social challenges. Our success lays in creating experiences that are universally enjoyable in places based on the concept of love, allyship and compassion.

August 5: 5:00pm – 11:59pm / August 6: 11:00am – 11:59pm / August 7: 11:00am – 6:00pm

Retail and food vendors, live entertainment and much more.
