Windsor-Essex Pride Fest delivers a number of unique events, initiatives and social programs that strengthen the community and contribute to the vibrancy, health and overall well-being of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer and Two Spirit (LGBTQ2S+) residents in Windsor-Essex. For 30 years, Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has produced the annual Festival and Parade, as well as many other recreational and social programs and activities that have raised awareness of ongoing social challenges including discrimination, exclusion, harassment and assault.

Since its humble beginning as a small march of about 100 people in Windsor back in 1992, the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest which is a registered non-profit organization, has become one of our community’s most anticipated cultural attractions. Now 30 years later and over 7,000 visitors annually, Windsor-Essex Pride Fest continues to promote equality and diversity through a range of fun-filled events and activities created for all to enjoy.

This year’s Pride Fest promises to be even more action-packed. Our festival includes local artists, kid-friendly games, activities, entertainment, educational workshops and much more. Our annual Pride Fest Parade is a tradition that brings fun, style and levity to Windsor-Essex and is always a crowd-pleaser as together we work our way to the Lanspeary Park.

Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has always been more than just a festival. As an organization it has always been our mandate to empower our members and members of the LGBTQ2S community to connect with one another and be a part of the larger community. We have always done our best to facilitate opportunities for connection and belonging through activities and initiatives as well as social/recreational programs and special events. All of these activities, programs and events address social isolation and help to create a community that is more accommodating, resilient and engaged to the broader LGBTQ2S+ community in Windsor-Essex. A lack of peer or social support, activities, gatherings or other resources in the community can lead to social isolation that often escalates into a number of problems including homelessness, depression, violence, and often, suicidal ideation.
