2013 Community Notice

Pride Toronto invites you to celebrate with us and over 1 million people this year’s Pride Week Festival from June 21 to June 30, 2013. Please join us for various social and cultural activities around Toronto during the weekdays that lead up to the Trans March, Dyke March and Pride Parade. The Pride Weekend Street Festival begins Friday evening, June 28th, 2013.Let’s all be proud that our Pride Week Festival is officially designated as a City of Toronto “Signature Event”, as well as one of Canada’s largest cultural festivals and one of the world’s largest Pride events.

East-west streets severed by the Church St. closure will be designated “two-way” for the dura­tion of the closure. Access will be available from Yonge St. or Jarvis St. While vehicular access will be limited, your driveway and garage entrances will not be blocked. Toronto Police Officers or Pride Toronto Safety Ambassadors will be stationed at all necessary intersections to ensure that residents have access to and from their homes. Should your garage exit onto Church St, Wellesley St E or Alexander St. there will be limited opportunities to exit or enter. Please view the list of road closures stated below.

Pride Toronto is working with the City of Toronto to ensure continued safety of the neighborhood during our celebrations.
