This was the Canal Parade!

A successful edition of the world-famous boat parade

The Canal Parade in Amsterdam is the highlight of the annual Pride Amsterdam every summer, with elaborately decorated boats and no less exuberant passengers and visitors in boats and on the docks along the side.

Nowhere else in the world will you find a festival comparable to Pride Amsterdam. A day where we celebrate all forms of love and people, including cisgenders, gay men, lesbians, transgenders and every other person from the LGBTQIA+ community.

We proudly offer our boats every parade for you, the visitors, to get a spot along the side. Will you be there next year?
