Economic Impact

Over the course of our 2016 Festival, through the support of Tourism Calgary and the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance, a professional Economic Impact Assessment was performed to measure the financial impact and benefit of the Calgary Pride Festival, and demonstrate the value of the event to our city, province and nation. We have gathered the key highlights of this report below, which show just how substantial the impact of the Calgary Pride Festival has become.
