Join the 200+ contingents, over 200,000 marchers, and 2.6 million spectators for our 2022 Pride Parade. Join us for our 41st commemoration in person!

The Pride Parade is about celebrating diversity and creating an inclusive experience for all. Pride Toronto is excited to be taking a more sustainable approach to its annual Parade which will be held Sunday June 26th at 2:00pm with the goal to eventually host a zero-waste Pride festival in the future.

Contingents

Participation Details

In order to do our part in reducing the carbon footprint of the festival weekend, we are strongly encouraging Parade contingents, sponsors, partners and community members to consider marching in the annual Parade over the use of registering vehicles and floats. This eco-friendly approach is not only better for our environment but also allows us to celebrate the origins of Pride Toronto that started as a protest. Costumes, themed collectives and creativity is highly encouraged.

  1. Should registering a vehicle or float still be preferred, we are introducing new requirements and regulations that must be abided by in order to participate in the Parade. Details include:
    Vehicles must either be:
    1. A certified hybrid vehicle.
    2. A certified e-powered vehicle.
    3. A vehicle with a diesel engine that will exclusively use biodiesel for the duration of the Parade (this includes arrival and departure).
  2. Trailers must be a maximum length of 14 feet. Please ensure that your vehicle hitch ball is the correct weight and size to pull the respected trailer.

Proof of compliance to the new regulations must be provided to Pride Toronto no later than June 10, 2022.

If you are interested in participating in the Pride Parade 2022, please review the Terms and Conditions.

If you are interested in participating and facing financial barriers, please contact us at [email protected] to see how you can participate for 2021.
