Administrative history

Edmonton’s Queer History Project timeline suggests that several gay groups in Edmonton came together in 1982 to organize a mini-Pride Festival, and expanded it to a week-long celebration in 1983 with events such as an art exhibition, film festival, and music night. For the early years of the Pride Festival (ca. 1983-1998), planning for the festival was accomplished by a GALA committee, and then a GLCCE committee. In 1999, the Edmonton Pride Festival Society was formed as the official non-profit organization charged with managing the Pride Festival events. In subsequent years, Pride Festival events have included rallies, fairs, poetry readings, art shows, picnics, sporting events, a film festival, an awards show, a mayor’s brunch and since the early 1990’s, a parade. The festivities take place annually, usually in mid-June.
