Get loud and proud with the fam at these all-ages and inclusive Pride Month activities.
Locals will tell you that during Pride Month (June 1–30, 2022) Toronto is a frenzy of lights, music and colourful flags. From late-night clubbing to our infamous and spectacular parade, Pride is an electric ride. But the fun doesn’t end there: Toronto’s scene has something for everyone — especially the kids! Celebrate diversity with these five activities geared at families, children and young adults.
Get wild this Pride Month at the Toronto Zoo
The Toronto Zoo is gearing up for a very special June, with Pride-themed events, animal enrichment and more! Over 5,000 unique and exotic animals call the zoo home, including the newest zoo-borns: three cheetah cubs and an orangutan baby!
Skip the long lines by arriving for an early morning or late afternoon visit, when the zoo is less crowded, for a more relaxed family experience. Heed the call of the wild because Toronto Zoo’s month-long animal party is packed with fun the family won’t want to miss!
Leave your mark at the Letters to a Future Queer interactive mural installation
This event will be a thrill for artists and art-lovers of all ages. In a unique Pride event orchestrated by Lovers Art Club, this 170-foot interactive mural features visual narratives about love, Queerness and the future as told by 2SLGBTQ+ community members.
Paint and other materials will be available so your fam can contribute to this continuously developing mural network. Join in at Church Street between Carlton and McGill Streets during Pride weekend (June 25–26).
Cozy up at TPL’s Rainbow Storytime
Bookworms, music fans, queer and questioning kiddos — and anyone looking for family-friendly fun — can swing by Toronto Public Library's (TPL) Yorkville and Parkdale locations on select dates for positive tunes and tales.
Rainbow Storytime is a must-attend for any family with little kids, with singing, activities and stories to get the whole family in the Pride spirit. Grab your favourite stuffed animal, get comfy, and enjoy the fun!
Cheer the home team at Blue Jays Pride Month Kickoff Weekend
The first weekend of June promises a whirlwind of excitement at the Rogers Centre as the Toronto Blue Jays kick off Pride Month with a two-game weekend matchup against the Minnesota Twins.
Expect inclusive and interactive activities, performances and limited-edition Pride-themed prizes! Additional festivities will be geared at young Jays fans on June 5 with a very special Jr. Jays Sunday focused on inclusion and kindness. Bonus: the first 15,000 fans in the stadium on June 3 receive a Blue Jays Rainbow Towel!
Get loud and proud at Family Pride
Family Pride (June 22, 2022) celebrates the strength, unity and uniqueness of youth and 2SLGBTQ+ families. Get loud, proud and have fun with a jam-packed roster of all-ages activities, including games, music, crafts, face painting, story time and extra special performances (Yes! You will see drag queens!) — and more! This fun-filled LGBTQ+ oasis takes place at Church Street Public School from 10 a.m.– 4 p.m., so swing by with the fam for joyfully queer fun!
