Since its humble beginning as a small march of about 100 people on Wyandotte Street back in 1992, the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has become one of our community’s most anticipated cultural attractions. Now 23 years later, and over 5,000 visitors annually, The Windsor-Essex Pride Fest continues to promote equality and diversity through a range of fun-filled events created for all to enjoy.
A registered non-profit corporation Windsor-Essex Pride Fest is unique to our region in that we organize and develop Pride Fest an annual cultural festival, in addition to hosting comedy events “FRUITPUNCH” and “JUICEBOX”, the Spritz Boat Cruise, wine tours as well as ongoing work to enhance the LGBT travel and tourism industry. All of our events are designed to appeal everyone, which sets us apart from every other Pride organization.
This year’s Pride Fest takes place August 7-9, 2015, and it promises to be even more action-packed with live entertainment, food and merchant vendors and much more.
