Hosted by Borden Pride Network and Fierté Simcoe Pride, with funds going towards local Pride events.
NOTICE (JULY 18): This event has been cancelled. Please read the statement below for more information.
Dear Community Members,
It is with disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of the Pride Cruise scheduled for this Saturday, July 21 in Midland. Without meeting the 'break even' point via sales or sponsorship necessary for the event to move forward, the event cannot go on.
This event, which was led by the Borden Pride Network and supported by Fierté Simcoe Pride, was meant to be a fundraiser in support of our upcoming Pride festivities from July 30 to August 12. In a year when cash sponsorship has been lower than previous years, it is important that Fierté Simcoe Pride prioritize events such as the Trans Pride March is assessing the risks of an event that will cause income loss. We could not in good conscience allow this to move forward.
For those who purchased tickets, we apologize for this and for any inconvenience this may cause you. Fierté Simcoe Pride we will be issuing full refunds to those who purchased online through our site. You may, if you wish, opt to have the cost count towards a ticket for the Pride Awards Gala or as a donation.
We will be reaching out to all of those who have purchased tickets online to inform them of the cancellation, as we have here, and to sort out refunds or other options.
We are deeply sorry that we have had to cancel this event, and hope you will join us for our upcoming Pride festivities in just over a week.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
In the spirit of community,
Brandon Rhéal Amyot
