PrideHouse Toronto hosted three full weekends of parties during the Pan Am Games. Presenting an incredibly diverse lineup of acts — Brazilian DJ squad The Weekend, Ultra Naté, Drag Race superstar Adore Delano and NYC performance legend Joey Arias, among others — the park was alive with music and a relaxed, village vibe for most of July.
The games came to a close on July 26, 2015, and with that came a final weekend of parties such as Jazz in the Park and Cherry Bomb. Below are our favourite moments from the weekend. Here’s to more outdoor events in our fine city.

Park hangout with this crew looks equally fun and dangerous all at once.
