Storytelling is really important to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community as a way of sharing our experiences and finding solidarity in our struggles. Come share the love of storytelling, while learning how to add your own voice through Zine Making and other forms of art. Art supplies will be provided! All ages welcome – there will also be a book reading for young kids/for the children inside our hearts.

Peace Love ‘n Pride is teaming up with St. Michael’s Printshop to host a Tee Shirt Printing Party! During this event, you can bring your own plain & pale shirt, jacket, sweater, etc and watch the Peace Love n’ Pride logo get printed on it by St. Michael’s awesome volunteer staff. We have a very limited quality of shirts available for those who cannot bring their own, so if you have extra plain shirts you’d like to donate to other attendees (especially plus size), please do!

This event is all ages – kids can get their t-shirts printed too!


Time: Tuesday, July 9. 7 to 9 pm.
Location: Eastern Edge

Two of our fabulous festival organizers will be running this workshop together! Both are experienced in kink, BDSM, consent, and are familiar with both domming and subbing. Our kink duo will go over the must-knows for practicing safe kink and safer sex. This workshop is educational, fun, relaxed, and will include a demonstration of some low-level ties for attendees that are interested! Come join us for a safe, fun, kinky chat! Even for those more experienced in kink, it’s always beneficial to go over the basics, and you could always learn something new and meet like-minded people!

This is an educational safe sex workshop, it is all ages, but there will be mature content.


Time: Friday, July 12, 6 – 10 pm.
Location: Eastern Edge, 72 Harbour Drive.
Info: Accessible space, All Ages, Free, no registration required.
There will be finger foods and FANCY MOCKTAILS to enjoy at this event! 🍸

It’s our never before seen QUEER ARTIST EXTRAVAGANZA! Four hours of art, performances, and tasty alcohol-free mocktails! Grab a drink, pop out your pinky finger and feel fancy as you peruse the works of some AMAZING local queer artists, including:

Jude Benoit, who will host a one stop shop magical queer witch gypsy native booth!
Nicole Cox (Sweet Dreams Native Crafts And Jewelery), who will be showcasing skillfully crafted Dream Catchers and Jewelry!

And to top off the event, we finish with an hour of OPEN MIC performances, starting with all those who attended our Storytelling Workshop on July 7. If you didn’t attend the workshop, no worries, bring your work anyway and we’ll try and squeeze you in!

6:00 – artists booths are open, food and mocktails are served. Ask will perform around 6:30
7:00 – The Artist Talk – Each artist will talk about themselves, their work, and their creative spirit for 5-10 minutes, and the audience will be able to pick their brains with a Q&A! Afterwards the artist’s will return to their booths so you can continue to browse and interact with them. Ask will perform again around 8:15.

The Trans Picnic is taking place following the Trans March in Eastern Edge’s parking lot. We will also have access to Eastern Edge, so there’s no need to worry about rain! Come join us for food, music, love, and support from our fabulous allies. This picnic, as you may have guessed from the name, is primarily for trans folks, but all are welcome! You are strongly encouraged to bring snacks to share.

We’re happy to embrace our new allies from the #FreeMomHugs group in St. John’s who are excited to bring their love and support to the picnic – and hopefully some cookies too! After you grab a bite to eat, you’ll also be able to grab a hug!

Donations are not necessary, but are greatly appreciated. We will also be accepting donations of money, canned/dry foods, or personal care items (deodorant, shampoo etc) to give to S.H.O.P.
