Pride Festival

Pride Festival is a week-long series of events intended to celebrate two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (2SLGBTQ+) identities in the Carleton community. Our programming focuses on facilitating education about sexual orientation and gender identity and bringing awareness to issues within the 2SLGBTQ+ community. It will take place from October 4 to October 8, 2021.

There is an extensive mix of educational and social programming available. You can learn more about the events and register for them below.
