Halifax Pride is going back to grassroots in 2023

Here are some of the performing arts events taking place this year during Halifax Pride.

While the Halifax Pride committee appears to be in disarray and with the annual festival and parade still in question this year, that hasn’t stopped groups from organizing their own events during the official Pride dates of July 20-30.

Here are some of the performing arts events taking place this year. Given the uncertainty surrounding the festivities this year, we recommend confirming events directly with organizers to ensure they will take place.
