Highlights of Capital Pride include sporting events, a Rainbow Party, a family picnic and the always-popular Pride Parade. Choose from a dozen signature events and more than 50 community events—many of them free!

On Festival Weekend, the intersection of Bank Street and Somerset Street West, the centre of Ottawa's Gay Village, becomes an entertainment hub with live music, a community fair and a beer garden.
