Montreal Pride Festival 2023 - Event


The Fierté Montréal Festival Is Back in Full Force with a 17th Edition More Relevant Than Ever!

Announcing the 11 celebratory days of the 17th edition of the Fierté Montréal Festival, presented by TD Bank Group in collaboration with Loto-Québec, Fierté Montréal reminds us that in a social context where the oppression of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities persists, the purpose of the Festival is more relevant than ever.

A Representative, Accessible and Generous Festival

"Last year, under challenging circumstances, the communities claimed loud and clear that pride is inextinguishable," explains Simon Gamache, Fierté Montréal's Executive Director. "We are back with a strong edition which, we hope, will meet their aspirations. Our vision is to offer a representative, accessible and generous festival to which we invite all Montrealers as well as visitors from all around the globe to discover and support the creativity and vitality of our communities."

Spreading Out All Over the City

The Festival will take place from August 3 to 13 all around the city, including at the Olympic Park's Esplanade -Festival main site- as well as in the Village, Jardins Gamelin, the Montréal Casino, Le National, Société des arts technologiques (SAT), Club Soda and elsewhere. In addition to the Pride Parade along Boulevard René-Lévesque, Fierté Montréal is bringing back two Community Days that will take place on Sainte-Catherine Street East, in the heart of the Village.

Diversity at the Forefront

Fifteen major free shows are planned with over 150 artists, 95% of them emerging from the sexual and gender diversity, who will perform on the stages of the biggest 2SLGBTQIA+ gathering in the Francophonie. Fierté Montréal's Programming Director, Chris Ngabonziza, has imagined a festival that showcases and celebrates artists from our local communities as well as from elsewhere in the world, by highlighting their creativity. He states, "We especially want to allow people to experience the magic of inclusion and diversity with this deliberate emphasis on emerging artists and artists of colour. Our allies are invited to the party."
