The event will also feature children’s activities, live concerts, and a fundraiser BBQ.

“We are thrilled to get back to our main programming and hosting free outdoor events that can be enjoyed by everyone in the 2slgbtqtai+ community,” said Lee Keple, Interim Executive Director of Vancouver Pride to Daily Hive. “The sun is shining, we have a great lineup of entertainers, activities and vendors and we can’t wait to be together again with all y’all.”

Bring your picnic blanket and stake out a spot on the grass for live performances by QueerProv, Drag Story Time, Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours, and the Rainbow Concert Band.

There will also be Bubbles, giant Jenga, a children’s parachute game, button making, and queer trivia.

Be on the lookout for food trucks like Tornado Potato and Aloha Poke serving up mouth-watering grub.

And if you’re in the mood for some delicious old-fashioned BBQ, Saige Community Food Bank will be selling freshly grilled veggie and meat hot dogs all for a good cause.
