You'll be able to walk down Church Street with a drink in your hand at Pride this year

You’ll be able to enjoy a bevy walking through Pride Toronto festivities this year. “Pride Toronto is introducing our first-ever Alcohol Open Carry program,” according to the 2018 Pride Guide.

It means that rather than being confined to beer gardens, 19+ festival goers with a wristband will be able to purchase alcoholic drinks from participating partners and walk around designated areas across the festival.

Among the participating bar serving drinks to-go at the festival are Loaded Pierogi, Black Eagle, O’Grady’s on Church, Boutique Bar, Pegasus on Church, Smith, Crews & Tango, The Drink, and the Glad Day Bookshop.

It’s the first time that a major Toronto street festival has introduced the option to enjoy a beverage almost anywhere on festival grounds, and with any luck, more Toronto festivals will follow suit.
