Queen City Pride is an LGBT pride festival, held annually in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.[1] The event is held mid-June each year, normally in the week following Saskatoon Pride.[2] The festival is administered by Regina Pride Inc., a non-profit corporation in the province of Saskatchewan.

The event kicks off with a raising of the rainbow flag at the Regina City Hall on the Monday of Pride Week,[3] and concludes with a parade and community fair on the Saturday.[3]

The event was first recognised by Regina City Council in 1989.[4] The 2014 event marked the first time in the city's history that the incumbent mayor, Michael Fougere, presided over the raising of the rainbow flag to kick off the event.[5]
