Along with Berlin, Amsterdam Pride is one of Europe's top Gay and Lesbian Pride Festivals. Visitors will enjoy a fun programme that includes a canal parade, sporting events, street and club and circuit parties, a film festival and much more.
Where most gay pride parades use trucks, Amsterdam has boats. Some 75 decorated boats sail from 14:00 until 18:00 through the Prinsengracht and Amstel river. Nighttours and YouTube will host one of the biggest boats during the Canal Parade this year, featuring DJ Fabio White and Diva MayDay. Gay street parties start at the Reguliersdwarsstraat (Young / trendy) and Amstel (Dutch) Westermarkt, Paardenstraat (Women), Rembrandtplein, Halvemaansteeg. (Dutch / popular) and Amstelveld.
Other higlights include the White Party, rising star at the circuit party scene Roxy Colosseum and a somewhat more intimate version of Fresh with Circuit DJ Tony Moran. Bears and their lovers are welcome at Club Odeon for a special edition of Bear Necessity.
