The boats start at the Scheepvaart museum at 12:30pm, moving towards Amstel, from there taking the Prinsengracht towards Westerdok.
Amsterdam Gay Pride really is one of the best pride events out there, and it attracts a large and diverse crowd each year, with many traveling from overseas to attend! It is also one of the most unique prides around, seeing as its procession of floats takes place on a series of boats, which travel down the city's iconic canals.
Following the parade, you can look forward to lively celebrations transpiring in the city's gayborhood, on Reguliersdwarsstraat, where a host of bars and clubs will welcome pride enthusiasts well into the night. With the city's renowed liberal attitude and very active gay scene, this is one pride you shouldn't be forgetting this season.
The celebrations kick off on July 27, with the Amsterdam Gay Pride Opening Party, which is held at Vondelpark. Expect speeches, DJs, and performers, along with a series of stalls of LGBTQ organizations and companies. On August 2-4, Amsterdam Gay Pride shifts its focus to street parties, where the city's alleyways come alive in a sea of color and noise.
The big day, Canal Parade, will happen on August 3 this year. A procession of floats on boats makes its way through the canals of Amsterdam, and is really a sight to behold. Think plenty of color, balloons, and dancers. To finish things off in style, the Amsterdam Gay Pride closing party takes place the next afternoon, August 4, at Dam Square.
So whether you plan to party with full commitment over the entire Pride, or you'd rather take things down a notch with just one or two events, this Pride is certainly not worth missing either way.
