Central Alberta Pride Week!

Central Alberta Pride Society (CAPS) proudly presents Central Alberta Pride Week August 13 – 20, 2018. Events will be held throughout the week to celebrate diversity and foster a sense of pride in Central Alberta. Members of the LGBTQ+ community, their families, friends and allies are invited to celebrate with us.

"Central Alberta Pride Week is a time to get together as a community to celebrate and honour who we are as persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression,” said Serge Gingras, Board Chair. “It is also a remembrance of LGBTQ+ history; an acknowledgement of past and current struggles here at home, in our community, and in other parts of the world."

Central Alberta Pride Week festivities will kick off with Pride in the Park at Bower Ponds on Sunday, August 13. Pride in the Park will feature a Mayor’s Proclamation followed by an afternoon of live entertainment, food trucks, games and activities for the whole family. Several events are scheduled for the remainder of the week, including family friendly bowling, movies, and the highly anticipated Drag Show & Dance on Saturday, August 19 at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel. A complete schedule is available at http://www.centralalbertapride/events.

Sponsors and volunteers are needed to help make Pride Week successful. Anyone interested in getting involved is asked to visit our Sponsorship page, or email centralabpride@gmail.com.
