Amsterdam Gay Pride 2016

Saturday Jul 23 till Sunday Aug 07, 2016    

This year Amsterdam will host Europride, with Pink Saturday and the Pride walk July 23, a Human Rights concert at Dam Square on Sunday July 24, and the Streetparties & Canal Parade on August 4, 5 and 6. Amsterdam Pride yearly has street parties on Fri & Sat (till midnight), the Canal parade on Saturday through Prinsengracht & the Amstel canal and Closing Party at Rembrandtplein on Sunday Afternoon. During Amsterdam Pride there are also tons of parties, and may also be a good time to visit one of Amsterdam's many gay bars. This year there is a stage at the Stopera again as well.

This year's route of the Canal Parade has changed a bit, see the map below; the streets along the parade are closed for traffic.

What to Do

Europride will bring many gay events to the city, so make sure to check the Agenda section for latest events & additions. Not only will Amsterdam combine Amsterdam Pride with Europride, but also with Pink Saturday, the dutch national gay pride day.

Visit the many street parties in the gay areas and watch the Canal Parade on Saturday. Usually the weather is quite nice during Amsterdam Pride, getting you great parties outside in the Gay Areas. Please note that the Reguliersdwarsstraat no longer wants to organize street parties, instead go to Spuistraat and the square at City Hall.

On Sunday visit the big stage at Rembrandtplein.

Many gay shops usually have special activities and actions during pride, especially the gay bars should not be missed at this time.

The city is packed with gay people from all over the world during this weekend, so happy cruising, or, hold your partner or friend tightly! When strolling the city outside of the gay areas though, do use your common sense and avoid too obvious gay behaviour.
