Festive Gay Pride events take place the whole week of 25 July to 2 August 2015, with a street party and parade through the canals on Saturday the 1st. Don’t miss it!
Have you attended Gay Pride in Amsterdam yet? This is a super fun week long event with many parties and a wild parade through the canals that must not be missed!
Don’t miss the Prinsengracht canal parade on Saturday beginning at 14:00. It’s fun and crazy! Lots of boats with costumed dancers and loud music cruise the canals and entertain onlookers on the streets and bridges. Everyone dressed in pink makes a happy and colorful crowd. Even the sudden downpour of rain last year didn’t stop the people from filling the streets.
Check this map to see the boat parade route.
Another spectacle you should be sure to catch is the Drag Queen Olympics at the homomonument near the Westerkerk. These Olympic games begin at 19:00 on Friday and includes events like the handbag toss and stiletto sprint. Sign up to participate or just cheer on the stylish athletes.
We hope to see you there, and remember to wear your pink boa!
