Saskatoon Pride is an LGBT pride festival, held annually in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Organized by the Saskatoon Diversity Network, a [1 ] non-profit organization incorporated in 2002, the event takes place in early June each year. [2 ]
In its current form, Saskatoon Pride was first held in 2001.
Community groups in the city had held their own pride-themed events prior to this date, but 2001 marked the first time they were coordinated into a conventional Pride festival with a parade. [3 ] [3 ]
The event kicks off with a raising of the
rainbow flag at Saskatoon City Hall on the Monday of Pride Week, and concludes with a parade and community fair on the Saturday. [4 ] [5 ]
