[:en]Amsterdam gay pride is from 28 July till 5 August 2018, with Canal Parade and street parties taking place 3 – 5 August.
Amsterdam will have street parties all weekend long, the best club circuit parties and of course the famous Canal Parade on Saturday. Gay pride is one of the most busy weekends of the year in Amsterdam.
The highlight of the Amsterdam Gay Pride is the Canal Parade. Please note that since 2017 the route is reversed from previous years, now going from Amstel towards Prinsengracht. See here a map of the route and other information. The parade will start around 12:30 (one hour earlier)
Things are in 2017 a little different from other years:
The main stage is at Dam square, with DJ’s and performers on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.
There is no street party on Amstel in front of bar Amstel Fifty Four (because of new traffic routes). Also the Rembrandtplein party (including Sunday closing party) has moved to Dam square.
Bar Prik at Spuistraat will have street parties for it’s second year including a stage. Reguliersdwarsstraat will have an “intimate party” without a stage or outside bars.[:]
