WE
PROVIDE

PRIDE REUNITED

 JUNE 3-5, 2022 AT THE GRINDSTONE 

Fruit Loop is excited to bring you not one, but TWO incredible weekends of Pride programming. June 3 -5 and June 11. Proceeds from both weekends will support our community partner, Rainbow Refuge!

From June 3 - 5 we will be partnering with the Grindstone Theatre for a FREE street fair of epic proportions. Pride activities will be returning to Old Strathcona in west Ritchie AKA the garage district as we host a series of outdoor live performances, drag shows, dancers, photo booths, community booths, workshops, food trucks, beer gardens and late night dance parties to celebrate Pride here in Edmonton.

Many thanks to our Presenting Sponsor TD with outstanding support from SeaChange Brewing, Freddie, and Pattison!

With main stage takeovers by Indigi Hauz of Beaver Hills, Party Queens, and your Fruit Loop favourites.

Live Music by Matthew and the Keys, Emmet Michael and Homofonik!

 

Workshops on Sunday including morning yoga, drag lessons, and more!
