Canal Parade

#All

The famous Canal Parade returns on Saturday, August 5th 2023.

When
Time

Our famous Canal Parade returns on Saturday, August 5th 2023. Start: 12:00 at Oosterdok.

Route

Oosterdok – Nieuwe Herengracht – Amstel – Prinsengracht – Westerdok

Participants

The registration period for the Canal Parade 2023 will start in January 2023. More info is coming soon!

Interested to see who participated last year? See here our Canal Parade participants 2022.

Regulations Canal Parade 2022 (The regulations for 2023 will be online soon)

Categories

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 € 1,500 excl. VAT per year and is contracted for a minimum of 3 years. 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.
