Small Town, Big Heart

Welcome to Norwood Pride!

We are a group of volunteers from the small community of Asphodel-Norwood, located just 30 minutes east of Peterborough, Ontario.

Known for our Norwood Fall Fair, our progressive, safe community is also rich in heritage offering a rural lifestyle and economic opportunity.

While we're a small town, we have BIG HEART when it comes to supporting diversity and acceptance in our community. This is our website to promote the LGBTQ events we put on throughout the year.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about us and our efforts to promote inclusion and acceptance.

About Us

Norwood Pride is a group of local volunteers who support LGBTQ rights. Together, we drive inclusiveness and acceptance - not only through the events that we create - but through our daily lives.

Our first event - Norwood Pride 2017 - was an informal afternoon gathering hosted at the local Royal Canadian Legion (Branch 300) in the village of Norwood. The turnout was AMAZING! Over 300 people joined us on a beautiful sunny afternoon in July to enjoy music, BBQ and drinks on the patio. The response was overwhelmingly positive.

And so we decided to ramp things up for 2018. We held a flag-raising ceremony at the Town Hall in partnership with township officials. We coordinated with our friends at Peterborough Pride and co-hosted their softball tournament at the local Community Centre. And to top it off, we invited Warkworth local band, The John Cleats, to perform at our event.

In 2019, the informal group decided to form a non-profit - Norwood Pride, Inc. The donations we generate through go 100% back into funding future Norwood Pride events.

We invite you to connect with us if you're interested in becoming a member of our group! And be sure to join our mailing list to hear more about what we're doing!
