What does my ticket include?

Ticket holders will be provided with:

- Round trip transportation from uWaterloo main campus to the Toronto Pride Parade

- A uWaterloo at Pride 2013 t-shirt (while supplies last)

- Access to additional costume materials Sunday morning

- Bagged lunch *for marchers only*


Do I have to wear the t-shirt?

If you are marching with us, yes, you must wear the provided shirt during the Parade. We have worked hard to put together an overall look and theme for our parade entry. You can customize your shirt with materials provided during registration such as scissors and markers, or you can bring your own accessories. In fact, we encourage you to bring along your own costume items to dress black, gold, and pride rainbow from head to toe. Optional t-shirts will be offered to participants watching from the audience while supplies last.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Note: See the section on t-shirts for more info.


- Pack light! We will provide you with a t-shirt (while supplies last), costume materials, water, access to sunscreen, and a picnic lunch (for marchers only).

- Wear comfortable footwear; we like running shoes.

- Take pictures (and share them with us after the event). We will have two official event photographers, so you can relax during the Parade and enjoy the experience.

- Wear a hat (if you want to). A headpiece or hat is a great way to add an creative touch to your costume and show off what a Unity Warrior looks like to you.

- Show your Unity Warrior spirit! Bring additional costume accessories that are black, gold, or rainbow and fit with our theme of Unity Warriors. If you have any questions about if your item will fit with the theme, please contact us!

- Participate. If you are marching with us, you will be taught cheers and some simple dance moves to show off along the Parade route.


- Don’t leave things on the bus; you must carry everything that you bring with you.

- Don’t hand out items to audience members during the Parade. Pride Toronto has strict rules around sampling.

- Don’t bring a water gun of your own. We will have limited water with us on the Parade route and it will be for drinking purposes.

- Don’t open an umbrella while marching on the Parade route. You can have one with you for other parts of the day if you would like to carry it.

- Don’t bring or consume drugs or alcohol; there is a strict no drugs or alcohol policy at the festival.

- Don’t bring signs with messages that promote or condone violence or hatred of any persons or groups.

- Don’t bring signs with logos. Talk to us first as there are rules set out by Pride Toronto to follow.

- Don’t bring a banner; we can only have one banner for our contingent.

- Don’t arrive in clothing that exposes your chest or genitalia.


What happens if it rains?

The Toronto Pride Parade, and our bus trip to the Parade, are both rain or shine events! Please check the forecast and prepare appropriately. If you must wear rain gear, please use a clear poncho so that you costume will still be visible. Hint: Pride Parade audience members like to spray water guns at marchers (which can be greatly appreciated on a hot day), so be prepared to get a little wet even if the sun is shining.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you purchase a ticket that includes the bus transportation option you will travel by school bus from the Davis Centre to downtown Toronto and back. If you will be meeting us downtown, we will meet up with you at Allan Gardens (Jarvis & Carlton). Meet-up and bus departure times are outlined above.


Can I take the bus one way?

Yes! Select the “with bus” ticket option and during the registration process you can select “morning only” or “night only.”


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

No, your ticket is not transferable.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

We do not need you printed ticket; just bring your Watcard or another ID card to register the day of the event.


What is the refund policy?

All sales are final; we will not be providing any refunds for this event. While refunds will not be issued, we would appreciate it if you could let us know that you will no longer be attending so that we can maintain accurate registration numbers.


What is there to do at Toronto Pride?

Pride week runs from June 21 - June 30. On Sunday June 30, the highlight of the day is the annual Pride Parade, which starts at 2:00pm, as well as the StreetfairVisit the Pride Toronto website for a full listing of events.
