Contrary to popular knowledge, Vancouver Pride’s festivities go far beyond Pride Parade weekend.

With sunshine and warm weather forecasted this Saturday, conditions will be perfect for the East Side Pride festival at Grandview Park on Commercial Drive. The park is on the site of the historic Stonewall festival and is one of the longest standing free, family-friendly Pride events in the city.

Attendees can expect a day of music, games, vendors, community activations, and more, with musical acts such as RedSoulBluez, Chronfused, MamaRudeGyal, and Carousel Scene.

The event is hosted by Tonye Aganabe and will even include drag performances and ultimate competitions.
