Windsor Pride is an LGBT pride festival, held annually in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.[1] The event is organized by Windsor Essex Pride Fest, a non-profit organization, and is currently held in early August each year.

The event was first held in 1992.[1] Most festival events take place at the downtown Riverfront Festival Plaza,[2] with the concluding parade taking place on Ouellette Avenue between Elliott Street and Riverside Drive.[2]

Windsor-Essex Pride Fest also organizes other LGBT community events throughout the year,[3] as well as participating in tourism marketing projects including the publication of an LGBT tourism guide to Windsor and Essex County in 2012.[4] The organization received a $210,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2012 to expand its programming.[3]
