Local Pride Events – Vancouver and Burnaby

Burnaby School District will be participating in the Vancouver Pride Parade again this summer.
The parade starts at noon on August 5 on Robson Street (at Thurlow) and will wind its way along Robson Street, up Denman Street and along Beach Avenue before ending at Sunset Beach. Staff, students, and families are invited to participate by either walking with the Burnaby School District
float or cheering us along the parade route.

Come at 10am if you’d like to help decorate the float. 

For those joining the walk with our float, meet at the staging location on Thurlow
between Robson and Haro Streets by 12:15pm
. Our number is EW5.

Plan for hot weather – be sure to bring water and sunscreen. Burnaby Schools pride t-shirts
(resembling the above graphic) will be available for $10.

Burnaby’s first Pride Street Party is happening August 11 from noon to 4pm on the block of
Jubilee Avenue between Imperial Street and Nelson Avenue.

The event will include live performances, food, games & activities, prizes, storytelling, face painting,
and info & resources. Come visit us at the Burnaby Schools table.
