    I go every year, and there is plenty to do, depending on what you're into. Check out their website:

    Personally, I enjoy Le Grand Bal Disco in Parc Emilie-Gamelin (which takes place on the Sunday).

    I go every year because it's one of the best parties and cities to have fun in. Everyone is approachable and friendly, with little attitude (ok - that might be my new york pessimism sneaking in).

    for a list of events, check this out:

    I was thinking about it but decided that I can't make it. I heard that their pride parade committee fell apart and that their parade was canceled. Then some community groups quickly came together and rescued it. Here's their pride parade web site:

    The diverscite and bbcm organizations run the parties but not their pride parade. And to make it a little more confusing, their pride pride is this weekend (July 28-29) then the following weekend (Aug 3-4) are the parties.

    Have fun whatever you do.
