North Bay Pride is another event that will be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision was made after the board of directors met virtually to decide the fate of the 2020 festivities.

“We recognize that these are unusual times for everyone, so we do not want to cancel North Bay Pride 2020, but unfortunately there are many unknowns at this stage,” Jason Maclennan, media relations with North Bay Pride said. “We are learning that things change daily, and things are very unstable for many.”

“We have decided to postpone North Bay Pride at this time. Everyone must also understand that it cannot be the same event as we have planned for July 22 through 25, 2020 and we will adjust events to meet the needs of the community and protect the health of everyone we can,” he continued. “We know this may be disappointing and we are disappointed too, but your health is far too valuable to risk.”

As of this time, the board has not yet provided a potential new date for when Pride may take place, however, they add more updates will come.
