We want YOU for Disability Pride 2018

Do you want to get involved with a fun community event? Well, we have one for you!  Alberta is getting ready for a Disability Pride Celebration and Parade taking place in Calgary on Sunday June 3rd, 2018 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

What is a Disability Pride? 

It is about being happy with who you are and sharing yourself with the people around you! We will celebrate what makes each of us unique and how much we all have in common.

What will we do?

The Parade begins at 11:00 am  at Bankers Hall 315 8th Avenue SW. We will stroll down Stephen Avenue Walk and end up at the Olympic Plaza, where we will celebrate with a day of entertainment, food and fun.

How much does it cost?

It is free!
