Looking back on 2018

Relive the excitement of 2018’s Canal Parade.

The route

Although the majority of the parade takes place on the Prinsengracht, many other spots provide a great view of the boats. Boarding takes place at 11:00 in the Oosterdok, and the boats continue around to Nieuwe Herengracht and the Amstel river. They enter the Prinsengracht and then travel all the way around to the Westerdok – covering more than 5.5 kilometers with music, dancing and extravagant costumes.

All are welcome

A diverse group of people make Pride Amsterdam possible, from small local LGBTI foundations, to national interest groups, government institutions, political parties, the hospitality industry and companies large and small that support the LGBTI community.  

Check pride.amsterdam for the list of boats taking part in the parade.
