Picnic in the Park is back in Vancouver, and is being hosted this year by Josh Rimer, Vancouver’s very own Canadian gay role model — who won Mr. Gay Canada 2019.
Originally called the Teddy Bear Picnic, the event has a history stretching back decades.
The Teddy Bear Picnic allowed LGBTQ2+ community members to gather safely in an outdoor, public space and celebrate their Pride, a phenomenon that was unusual for the time.
Picnic in the park will take place after the Pride Run & Walk 2019, and will feature an exciting array of family friendly activities.
Everyone is welcome at this event, especially families. Attendees can grab a post-event drink at the new Stanley Park Brewing Brewpub, bring a picnic or treat themselves at one of the several amazing food trucks serving up an array of dishes and desserts with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options.
Food stalls include Meet2Eat, El Cartel, Chickpea, Roasted Revolution Food Truck, The Praguery, Come Arepa, JAPADOG and Dolce Amore.
The event will feature music by Westcoast Harmony Chorus and KELLE, as well as drag performances curated by Tuck Entertainment Inc.
Activities at Picnic in the Park 2019 include free, outdoor yoga classes at 9:15 am and 11:10 am, relay races, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, watermelon eating contest, giant rainbow parachute, three legged race, booths with crafts, button making and so much more.
