The Gay Pride canal parade Amsterdam

Gay Pride Amsterdam is one of the best and most fun prides in the world. This year it's from 26 July till 3 August 2014, with all major events taking place 1 - 3 August. The Canal Parade, on Saturday August 2, is the highlight of the Amsterdam Gay Pride weekend! 80 decorated boats sail along the Prinsengracht. The event is the second biggest of Amsterdam.


Thousands of spectators get early to the canals for the best spot. Most fun is to walk along the route, from the Central Station side towards the Amstel. Many guys have private parties on small boats on the side of the canal. The Canal Parade starts at 1.30 pm at the beginning of the Prinsengracht at the Westerdok harbour. At the end of the Prinsengracht, the parade turns left on to the Amstel river, passing the famous white Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug) and passes the Stadshuis / Muziektheater to make a right in the direction of the Oosterdok.
