The annual Pride Festival takes place in Holland Park this Sunday.

Surrey Pride Festival July 7 at Holland Park

14th-annual event celebrates diversity and pride in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.

It is Pride season, and societies around the world are hosting events to celebrate diversity and pride in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. Surrey is no different. On July 7 from 12-4.30 p.m., Surrey Pride Society will host its 14th annual Pride Festival in Holland Park.

This is an event open to all and includes performances, food, and information booths, as well as a Kids’ Zone provided by the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association.

There will be live singing from local artists such as Matthew Presidente, Norine Braun and Jennifer Geddes, improvisation comedy by The Bobbers, and music from the Vancouver Rainbow Band.

Hosted by Surrey’s own drag artiste, Mz A and former President Cory Cassel, there will also be appearances by special guest diva Myria LeNoir.

“Surrey is a wonderfully diverse city and Surrey Pride Society is delighted to provide a day for all to enjoy to celebrate diversity and inclusivity,” said society p resident Jen Marchbank. “We are also very proud to have the City of Surrey proclaim this day as the Surrey Pride Festival Day.”
