The Application Process

Our application process is constantly being refined based on your feedback and the changing political landscape we live in. Outlined below are the steps involved in applying to participate in the Parade or Marketplace.

If you wish to apply as a performer on our stage, please do so on our performer applications page.


Review Application Requirements

Before applying, we ask that you take a moment to read our application criteria and “need-to-know” information about the process and what your participation means.


Submit Online Application

Using our online form, we will collect all the pertinent information that we need in order to review your application. If you need to stop and come back at any time, you may use the “save and continue” feature.

Await Review

Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our team to verify details and ensure you have met all criteria. We appreciate your patience as this may take up to 4 weeks to complete review in some cases, as our process relies significantly on the time of volunteers.

Pay Invoice

Should your application be approved, you will be sent a confirmation email and a separate invoice for the application fees. Your spot in the parade or marketplace will be held until the invoice due date (Net 30), after which the spot will be opened to be first-come-first-served. Payment may be made via cheque or credit card; we appreciate cheque payments for amounts over $300 where possible.

Join us!

You’re now all set to go! We’ll communicate the particulars of what you’ll need to know on the day of closer to the event date and let you know when and where to be.
