Amsterdam Gay Pride Parade © FaceMePLS
Amsterdam's Pride is one of Europe's most popular and well-attended gay pride festivals, taking place annually between late July and early August. For many, its highlight is the Canal Parade, in which about 75 decorated craft carry revellers along the Amstel, Stopera and Prinsengracht canals. The festival includes a full programme of street parties, an open-air film festival on the Nieuwmarkt and many cultural and theatrical events. The city's club scene also comes alive, with special events and parties held all week long. All of the main events take place in central Amsterdam, and travellers should book accomodation in advance as the city gets very busy over Pride.
Venue: Various places throughout the city
Date: 31 July to 2 August 2022
