MARCH IN THE PARADE

Everyone in the LGBTQ2+ community and their allies are not only just welcome to march in the parade, but encouraged! Kingston’s Pride parade relies on the community to actively participate in marching in the parade. We understand there are barriers for some people to be actively engaged and we look forward to seeing you cheering from the sidelines.   If you are going to be marching with a group or business please let us know so we can coordinate the parade accordingly. Please keep in mind, parade day is a family-friendly event held in a public space so we please ask you dress and behave appropriately.

There is finite number of spaces available for exhibitors at our Pride Community Fair.

We welcome non-profit organizations to set up information booths (no sales of any kind) as well as Artisan Vendors who wish to sell their merchandise (Cost for vendors is $50 for the day).
