August Events

August Mosh:

In lieu of marching in the 2017 Vancouver Pride Parade, there will not be mosh in August.

VAN-PAH March in Vancouver Pride Parade August 6:

We are so excited to be marching in the Vancouver Pride Parade again this year. As we want all the pups and Handlers to have lots of energy to march, we will not be having a mosh in August. Worry not though as the parade will more than make up for missing a mosh day. Come out and join us. We had lots of fun last year and want to make this year even more so.

There is limited space so please sign up at the following link:

We will be updating information as the Pride officials give us our marching instructions so stay tuned but please sign up as soon as you can so we can know the numbers of people marching this year.
