We look forward to continued participation from local groups, and welcome those who have event ideas to apply their events for media release inclusion via the following link:
Individuals marching need no application, but we request that large groups register through the following form. There is a 99$ entrance fee for for-Profit Businesses and Governmental Organizations not focused on advocacy.
Pride Sponsors, Non-Profits, and 2SQUILTBAG+ focused organizations can waive the entrance fee of $99 following confirmation of their interest through the following form.
Additional insurance fees may be required to march, between advertising and vehicular insurance, as per Municipal Mandate.
St John’s Pride Inc. follows a mandate of wheelchair accessible venues with Gender Inclusive Washroom availability.
