Like so many of Windsor and Essex County’s favourite annual summer events, the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest (WEPF) is back with gusto and ready to celebrate this August.
For years this festival was the “new kid on the block,” but it is now all grown up and marking its 30th anniversary in its permanent home at Lanspeary Park. It takes place August 2 to 7, 2022.
WEPF is a non-profit organization delivering a number of unique social programs, activities and events, which contribute to the vibrancy, health and well-being of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer and Two Spirit (LGBTQ2S+) residents in Windsor Essex. The work of WEPF strengthens the overall community.
This year, Pride Fest kick offs with the official flag raising at City Hall (Charles Clarke Square) on Tuesday, August 2. City of Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens, political dignitaries, and other special guests are scheduled to attend.
