So what is a PRIDE Event? Well we asked our AI helper for that answer and they gave us pretty good one here…. https://prideedmonton.ca/what-is-a-pride-event/

In June of 2023 we saw over 70 events, then 7 in July and 14 in August all produced by more than 40 organizers in 40+ venues!

We will be delighted to post your event on our Calendar NO MATTER WHEN IT HAPPENS! And we will ensure that Explore Edmonton AND the Edmonton Downtown Business Association get your event info so they can add it to their calendars, if it is appropriate for the travel and tourism market they cater to – or within the Downtown Business area.

There is no deadline for submissions in general – only for the JUNE Guide To Pride on the Explore Edmonton website.

Tips on creating your Event Graphic –

Have you wondered why your event poster never shows up properly on social media? Here are some tips to making a poster that works.

Facebook requires your Event Pic Header to be 1200 pixels wide and 630 pixels high. They will only show your pic in Landscape mode! (This is also the best size for you Business page or Group header pic. We recommend that you avoid putting important text near the top and bottom. Leave about 10 pixels for each.)

Instagram will show pics in Landscape mode at 1080 pixels wide by 566 pixels high. If you create a graphic for Facebook you can use it but it will show as 1080 x 567. So the same Landscape pic will work for both.

Twitter uses 1600 pixels by 900 pixels and will accept that same 1200 x 630 pic and display it as 1600 x 840.

For all 3 apps you can also use a square pic at 1080 pixels by 1080 pixels. But remember that the Facebook event page will only display the middle as it requires 1200 x 630.

We strongly advise that you never create event posters in vertical mode except for TikTok and Facebook/Instagram stories. They will only show as a single pic and can not be used for your event.
