Queen City Pride is a week long non-profit annual celebration of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer) community in Saskatchewan’s capital city, Regina. The festival is run by Regina Pride Inc., a volunteer based committee.

Each year, we strive to create a fun filled festival for all, acknowledging the diversity, history, equality, and achievements that have been made.

We hope to make each consecutive year even better than the last, but that can only happen with your support.
