After an extremely successful 2013 Pride Festival, which saw over 30,000 people participate in the festivities, Pride Winnipeg announced today at The Forks Market, that the 2014 Pride Festival will be bigger and better than ever with an even greater focus on breaking down barriers.
The Pride Winnipeg Festival, which this year runs from May 23rd – June 1st, is one of the largest Pride celebrations between Toronto and Vancouver. Today, Pride Winnipeg revealed its 2014 Parade & Festival Theme as “WITHOUT BORDERS”.
Pride Winnipeg also announced today that the Pride Forks Festival, which occurs on Pride Day (the first Sunday in June), will now begin on the Saturday before. By beginning on Saturday, Pride Winnipeg will be able to further meet the demands of festival-goers for more programming, an expanded Queer Beer Tent, more time to take in the festivities and also an opportunity to draw more attention to community-run events such as the Winnipeg DykeMarch.
