The Bridge City is set to welcome the world with a massive display of love and pride.
Saskatoon has officially won the bid to host the InterPride World Conference and Annual General Meeting in 2018.
Members of the local Pride group travelled to Montpellier, France for the 2016 conference last week, where they made a bid on the event.
“There will be so much to see, do and learn for everyone, as well as some fun events with our friends from all over the world,” Saskatoon Pride Festival wrote in a Facebook post Saturday.
InterPride is an international organization that promotes LGBTQ rights around the world. The annual meeting is the largest of its kind, drawing Pride groups from around the world.
Saskatoon Pride Festival is looking for people to get involved with planning the event, set for Oct. 4-7, 2018. Next year’s conference will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana.
