Peak Pride 2023
Who says Pride needs to happen in summer!? Peak Pride winter pride festival is changing that narrative.
With dates locked in for 2023, the mountain Pride series is proud to be returning to SilverStar, Mt. Washington, and Sun Peaks.
[British Columbia Mountains, March 2023] Peak Pride is back and bigger than ever! New events, bigger venues, and a host of new talent, plus some returning favorites, make this year's mountain pride festival one not to be missed!
The 2023 circuit kicks off at Mt. Washington with our first festival hosted from March 2nd to 5th. After that, we head to the interior for our stop at SilverStar Mountain Resort from March 9th to 12th, 2023. Finally, we head north to Sun Peaks Resort to conclude the event with style on March 31st to April 2nd, 2023.
After the success of the 2022 version of the event, we couldn’t be more excited to return to two amazing partners in SilverStar and Mt. Washington. We’re also very excited to announce the return of Sun Peaks to our mountain line-up. All three mountains are amazing hosts that we’re pleased to be able to work with.
This year's festival promises to be the biggest yet, with a full weekend's worth of events planned for each stop, including favorites like drag brunch, the rainbow pride parade, QUSIC, and the highlight of the weekend, our Fruitcake drag show and dance party. This year's festival features a healthy mix of paid, free and family focused events. All events take place on the mountain, but most don’t require a lift ticket (or skiing ability!), so come on out even if you don’t do snowsports!
At the time of release, we’re still actively searching for sponsors and supporters for the event. If you or someone you know would like to be involved with Peak Pride, please reach out to us on our website.
Tickets are already available for most events, so get yours in advance for the best price and to secure your spot at the party. Details about all three mountains, schedules and tickets can be found on our website at www.peakpride.lgbt.
