Due to the incredible response from our robust and active community, registrations for the 2023 Community Street Festival and Parade are now officially CLOSED. The interest in participation we have witnessed is exciting, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see how proud our community is of their work for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in Ottawa and beyond. 

We extend our appreciation to all the organizations, businesses, crafters, and individuals who have shown interest in participating in this year’s Pride Festival.

While registrations for the Community Street Festival and Parade are now closed, we encourage everyone to join us in celebrating at the 2023 Capital Pride Festival. We have an exciting lineup of events, performances, and activities planned, promising the largest Pride Festival Ottawa has ever seen.

If you are looking for other ways to participate in this year’s festivities, please consider applying for a volunteer position
