  • Alternative Pride Festival Pass

    The 1st annual Alternative Pride Toronto Festival is an independent, non-corporate, artist-led music and art festival celebrating queer artists and spaces. Taking place over 4 days, we present unique and diverse events including warehouse take-overs, outdoor urban activations, wild gallery parties, and grimey underground after-hours - all while raising money for some important Toronto queer charities.
