2015 PARADE ROUTE

Due to the tremendous growth of the Calgary Pride Parade, and the phenomenal support of our community, we have now outgrown Stephen Avenue on 8th Ave, and have moved the celebration to the much larger 9th Avenue; the same place where the Calgary Stampede parade occurs every year! This change will allow for bigger and better parade entries, as well as increased safety for spectators and participants.

Parade Route

The 2015 Calgary Pride Parade route will travel down 9th Avenue S, from 1st Street SE to 11th Street SW
