Our ringette communities are coming together to support the 2022 Queen City Pride Festival! The Regina Ringette Association and the Buffalo Plains Ringette Association will be joining the the Queen City Pride Parade on June 11, 2022.
Cheryl Robertson and Cindy Knudsen, long-time ringette community members, will be leading the group on June 11. "Ringette is an inclusive sport. What better way to showcase our inclusivity than to participate in this parade!", said Robertson. We encourage all ringette players, friends, and family members to join the parade.
To participate in the parade, please let Cheryl and the ringette parade organizers know your intention by completing this simple Google form: https://forms.gle/bLYppHvTLNviDXm5A.
Ringette parade participants will meet at 11 AM in the staging area. The parade starts at 12 Noon. All participants are encouraged to wear a ringette jersey, association logo wear, ringette team hoodie, and/or anything colourful. We'll have a few RRA jerseys on hand for people to wear in the parade.
Ringette parade participants are also welcome to bring ringette sticks to walk with, toss some ringette rings with other ringette parade participants, and dance to the music! There will be cool "I Love Ringette" buttons to wear and hand out to spectators.
The Queen City Pride Festival is an annual 10-day celebration of Regina’s Gender and Sexually Diverse (GSD) communities, organized by Regina Pride. The events within the festival strive to fulfill Regina Pride's mandate to educate, entertain, and enlighten audiences on the rich diversity of Regina.
The Queen City Pride Festival was first held in 1990, though other pride marches and rallies were held in Regina during the 1970s and 1980s. The Queen City Pride Parade has grown to become one of Regina’s most colourful and recognized parades with over 4,000 participants marching through Regina’s streets.
