Pride in the Park 2023

After a 4-year hiatus, Pride in the Park returned to the Comox Valley!

In the lead-up to Pride Weekend, we had the pleasure of collaborating with Queer Culture, who orchestrated the Valley’s first-ever Pride Parade, plus a sold-out club night and drag brunch. CV Pride also partnered with the City of Courtenay’s LINC Youth Centre , who hosted a very successful youth Pride dance, and with the Comox Valley Regional District Recreation on a free Pride Family Swim to close out the weekend.

The parade ended up in Simms Park, where the Pride Society was waiting to greet the crowd along with a host of performers and exhibitors. The weekend was a huge success overall with overwhelming support from our sponsors and community partners, and it was beautiful to see all the smiling faces everywhere.

Here’s a short video snapshot of the day made by Roz Humphreys, using her live footage in combination with photos by Sara Kempner Photography.
