Amsterdam gay pride parade on the canals

Amsterdam Gay Pride 2021

Amsterdam Pride will have a another minimal edition this year. No Canal Parade and no indoor/outdoor parties.

Bars and terraces are open though (all seated). So we can have some pride drinks with the whole LGBT+ community in the bars.

The Pride Walk demonstration on Saturday will go on as well.

Amsterdam Gay Pride 2022

Dates for Amsterdam Pride 2021 still have to be announced. But in the past 20 years it has always been the weekend of the first Saturday of August.

So our prediction is that Amsterdam Gay Pride will be from Friday 5 August 2021 until Sunday 7 August 2022. This date still has to be confirmed!

Having your own boat party

Planning to watch the parade from the side of the canals on your own boat? You need to buy a permit for this. Also some more new regulations are in place.  Amplified music is not allowed on ships not participating in the official parade.
