The Canal Parade 2016

One of the most famous events in Amsterdam, the Canal Parade, will take place tomorrow. The parade is part of the Gay Pride.

This year the city of Amsterdam is host of the EuroPride, therefore the Canal Parade will be even more festive than before. A total of 80 LGBTI- organizations will be sailing through the canals of Amsterdam.

The boats will leave at 14:00 from the Westerdok and will sail through the Prinsengracht, the Amstel and The Nieuwe Herengracht to their destiation at the Oosterdok. The last boats are expected to arrive at 18.00u at the Oosterdok.

Note that it is not possible to enter the Prinsengracht from 10.00 am until midnight!

We wish everyone at the Canal Parade in Amsterdam a great day!
