Pride Canal Parade
Amsterdam Gay Pride

Annual first Saturday of August

A piece of freedom and extravagance, inextricably linked to Amsterdam. If you really want to experience the Pride Canal Parade, do so from a boat.


The Pride Canal Parade starts around 13:30 from the Westerdok, near Amsterdam Central Station. From here a procession of around 80 richly decorated and manned boats will head towards the Prinsengracht, via the Amstel to the Oostdok. Along the route there is room for boats not actively participating in the Parade.

Own party boat

By sailing ahead of the Parade and mooring along the route, you will have first-class views of the Parade and, in the meantime, the perfect location for your own party. Long before the boats pull along, the streets around the canals are packed and parties are being built everywhere.

Once the Parade has passed by it is possible to follow it or continue with your own party. In consultation we determine the desired interpretation.

Sloop rental during Pride Canal Parade

Amsterdam Boat Tour rents out luxurious open boats with a capacity of up to 45 people. The boats are very comfortable and fully equipped. Ideal for enjoying your own party and the Canal Parade for a longer period of time.
