Lanark County Wide Pride: June Events Calendar
Out of respect for the children whose lives were taken in Kamloops, and in solidarity with the Indigenous People and non-Indigenous People throughout Lanark County who mourn their loss, two Pride events have been rescheduled.
This year marks a historic proclamation and flag raising for the County of Lanark for the first time! In addition there are a number of proclamations and flag raisings in several communities:
- Carleton Place - Sinclair Square, June 17th at 10:00
- Mississippi Mills - Mississippi Valley Textile Museum,3 Rosamond Street East, Almonte, June 19th at 2pm
- Perth - flag viewing and ceremony, Crystal Palace, Colborne Street, June 19th at 4pm
- Lanark County, 99 Christie Lake Rd, Perth, June 28th at 11:00
- Smiths Falls - August 2021
Profiling Local LGBTQ2S+ Businesses
Whether you have grown up in Lanark County or have recently moved to the county you may have thought that you would have to drive into Ottawa to connect with the LGBTQ2S community.
That is not the case - here in Lanark County we have an annual Pride Parade in Perth as well as pride events in Smiths Falls, Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place. Each community is evolving in its own way with more and different events each year.
You can be involved as much as you like: attending events, helping on the day of the event, planning events or imagining new ways for our community to connect.
