The 2021 Halifax Pride Festival officially begins with our annual flag raising, featuring a variety of speakers sharing their thoughts on the beginning of another eleven day festival. Following greetings from the MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning – this year’s Pride Ambassadors – Halifax Pride representatives, and a reading of the proclamation by HRM Mayor Mike Savage, we will raise the Progress Flag to start this year’s gathering. Then, stick around to take in a portion of the summer concert series happening at Grand Parade.
