The 2018 Muskoka Pride Festival will be taking place July 20th to the 29th.    The annual week of activities celebrates the Muskoka LGBTQ community and this year’s celebration is special, according to Muskoka Pride board member Shawn Forth, because it celebrates 10 years of LGBTQ visibility in Muskoka. 

This year’s Festival theme is “Bringing Pride To You,” which represents an acknowledgement of Muskoka’s huge geography and Muskoka Pride’s commitment to holding events in all municipalities, which will be raising the Rainbow Pride flag and then hosting a community BBQ to allow residents to participate in the Pride celebrations locally. 

The Pride Festival week begins on Friday July 20th with the annual Pride Kickoff BBQ in Huntsville at River Mill Park and will come to a close on Sunday, July 29th with the tenth annual Muskoka Pride Picnic and Muskoka’s first-ever Pride Parade with lots of events scheduled through the week.
