Thank you to our 2022 Sponsors

The inaugural Ottawa Family Pride Festival was a huge success in part because of sponsorships from companies and individuals alike.

Their generous support enabled us to expand festival programming and make events more accessible, ensured our volunteers had the resources they need to get the job done, and helped Youth Outreach in Ottawa.

Please join us in saying “thank you” to all of our sponsors!
