The Surrey Pride parade will not take place this year due to lack of funding.

“Sadly, we were unable to secure funding to be able to produce a parade this year,” Surrey Pride Society President Shawn Ewing told Daily Hive.

However, Ewing confirmed that a Pride Festival would be taking place on June 25 at Holland Park.

“There’s great entertainment, numerous community vendors and yummy food vendors,” said Ewing.

“This is an all inclusive family event with something to offer everyone.”

Last year, the City Surrey made history by hosting their first-ever Pride parade.
