The 10-day festival usually falls on the last week of June. The Pride parade is held on either the last weekend of June or the first weekend of July. About 100,000 people attend the parade. After the parade, there are lots of live music and entertainment. Church Street gets turned into a large beer garden.

Toronto Pride is one of the largest festivals in North America. The festival site consists of 22 city blocks that are closed to traffic.
