2024 Pride Parade

Event Date:
Saturday, July 20, 2024, 11:00 am

One of the signature events of Pride PEI’s festival is the Pride Parade, when individuals, families, friend groups, and organizations join a colourful line-up to walk through the streets of Charlottetown. Thanks to the leadership of the UPEI Student Union, and support from UPEI Alumni and UPEI Communications, UPEI is proud to participate in the 30th annual parade.

The 2024 Pride Parade will take place on Saturday, July 20, and all students, staff, faculty, and alumni are invited to join alongside the Panther Patrol van! Participants are asked to meet at 11:00 am on parade day in the parking lot behind the provincial government buildings on Terry Fox Drive, Charlottetown. The parade begins at 12:00 pm and ends at approximately 1:00 pm.

UPEI participants are asked to wear bright rainbow colours and be ready to wave and cheer! As an option, UPEI Pride t-shirts can be purchased from the UPEI Bookstore, or UPEI shirts and hats can be dressed up with a little Pride colour. 

For those who are unable to make it to the parade, they can express support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in other ways such as wearing bright rainbow colours during the 10-day PEI Pride Festival.
