Amsterdam Gay Pride


August 5, 2016 - August 7, 2016

During the first weekend of August, Amsterdam is briefly transformed into the Capital of Happiness and Love during the Gay Pride event. The biggest gay event in Holland features special movies, exhibitions, workshops and above all parties, which openly give a face to the homosexual community. Everyone is welcome at the Amsterdam Gay Pride.

Canal Parade

The Gay Pride’s absolute highlight is the Canal Parade. Approximately 500.000 spectators celebrate with and marvel at the long boat parade through the Amsterdam canals. The Canal Pride is as varied as the gay community itself.   

Gay in Amsterdam

Amsterdam was the first city with a gay monument and gay marriages. It is also home to one of the biggest Gay Prides in the world. There has always been an open-minded and tolerant attitude towards the gay community in the city. Amsterdam Gay Pride lasts one week and invites you to come and have a gay time in Amsterdam!
