The city says portions of its downtown street network will be temporarily closed in the coming days to make way for the parade and other Pride festivities.

According to a news release, northbound Hargrave Street between Bannatyne and William avenues will close from 6 a.m. Friday, May 31 to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 1.

Another slew of closures will be in place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. They are:

The parade is the culmination of the 2024 Pride Winnipeg Festival, which runs from May 24 to June 2. The annual event is aimed at bringing Winnipeg’s 2SLGBTQ+ community and its allies together to celebrate during a series of events.
