Rebellious Unicorns and Mount Washington Alpine Resort are excited to host another edition of Peak Pride, kicking off on March 2nd, 2023.

The four-day Pride festival begins Thursday, March 2nd and runs through the weekend, finishing Sunday afternoon.

The festival kicks off Thursday evening with Unicorns Reawakened, a free stage show that highlights the struggles of queer artists during the pandemic. The evening will also feature a drag bingo event. Friday is headlined by LaughOUT, a queer comedy night and late-night karaoke at Ted’s.

Saturday is the most event-filled day of the festival, with activations running right from morning until late at night, including:

  • A mountain pride parade
  • QUSIC live music showcase
  • Peak Pride’s signature event, Fruitcake, a drag show and dance party where festival-goers can dance the night away with a live DJ and outstanding drag performances.

The festival closes on Sunday with Ella’s drag brunch at 40 Knots Winery in Comox, catered by Cheffanie.


Talent for the weekend includes a mix of local favorites and interprovincial talent, with Ella Lamoureux, Henrietta Dubet, Matthew Presidente, DJ DAZM and Simma Downe all scheduled to perform at various events during the festival.

Tickets for the festival can be purchased online from the events page on Ticket prices range from $15 to $69, depending on the event. Buying tickets well in advance is recommended, as our events sell out and door tickets are not guaranteed.
