Senior Pride Concert
This intimate and colorful concert is there to thank and honor our pink pioneers for what they have meant to the community. In addition, it is a warm encounter for the neighbourhood, the residents and the surrounding catering industry. The concert is a great moment to see each other again. With a variety of entertainment & dance on stage – from Jordanian music to well-known ballads – host ‘Mario Magic’ will lead the audience through the evening.
A wide variety of music, a relaxed atmosphere and recognizable songs from the Concert will frame the Square.
The cold drinks, a DJ and the sweltering summer evening take care of the rest.
In the crowded agenda of Pride Amsterdam 2023, this Concert on the Square is a small gem that you should not miss.

Oosterdok – Nieuwe Herengracht – Amstel – Prinsengracht – Westerdok
Interested parties wishing to participate in the Canal Parade are could register from January 9th to February 9th 2023 and submit their concept. After the registration was closed, a ballot committee decided which applications were the most beautiful and best fitted to the theme #YouAreIncluded. On Saturday February 18th, during our annual kickoff event, we announced the 80 boat participants for the Canal Parade, held on August 5th.
CANAL PARADE PARTICIPANTS 2023
Because in recent years there has been a discussion about the orientation and social involvement of different participants, a new classification of the participant categories has been made. The new classification does more justice to everybody’s part in the struggle for the emancipation of LGBTIs and the support for our Pride.
Boats along the route
Due to the increasing number of visitors who want to join the Pride with their boat and the limited space available, all boats along the route need a Pride Vignette. If you want to take your boat to the Pride to spend time with family or friends, you can do so with a boat up to <10 meters. This ‘new’ regulation prevents parties who do not contribute to the organization from celebrating their own party at our event and thereby also causing the most inconvenience. The sale of the Pride vignettes will start on July 1st 2023 via www.botenparade.nl.
Pride Business Club
In 2018 we established a ‘Pride Business Club‘. Companies that are not directly associated with the LGBT community can only participate in the canal parade if they are members. This way, we want to involve them more in the emancipation part of Pride and at the same time create a network of professionals that support us both financially and in terms of content. A maximum of two contacts are registered per membership and will be invited to the meetings and activities. Membership costs € 2.000 excl. VAT per year. Of this amount, 50% is intended for the continuity of the organization and 50% is spent on the organization of substantive activities. See more info at www.pridebusinessclub.nl.
