The Amsterdam Gay Pride weekend will be full of events and parties. In the end the complete program will be a mix for anyone’s taste. These are the main outlines of everything to come up. Keep an eye on to get the latest updates on parties and events.



For the thirteenth time the extravagant Canal Parade will be held during Amsterdam Pride 2008. With 250.000 spectators this event is the third largest in Amsterdam.

If you want to be a spectator of the Canal Parade we suggest you find a spot somewhere along the Prinsengracht or Amstel in the old city of Amsterdam. Also at the Stopera a lot of people are watching the boats come by. Many enjoy the parade standing on a bridge over the Prinsengracht.

The parade happens Saturday  August  1st, between 14:00 and 18:00.  See the whole Gay Pride schedule online.

A unique aspect this year is that the minister for the emancipation of homosexuals, Mr. Plasterk, will join the Canal Parade.

Last year Amsterdam Gay Pride drew in a record amount of visitors. Some 500,000 people watched the Canal Parade, where a record 75 boats took part.

For the first time there were also boats with heterosexuals, gay youths under 16, city boats and the mentally handicapped.
