Amsterdam’s citywide gay pride festival takes place the first weekend in August and attracts several hundred thousand visitors each year. The Canal Parade takes place Saturday and is one of the coolest parades in any pride festival. There are around...more
Amsterdam was full of gay pride flags around the city, in bars, hanging off of windows etc. The city was full of celebrations over the weekend. In particular we really enjoyed the canal parade which had 80 boats passing through. We were at the end...More
My wife and I happened to visit family and coincidentally we realised it was a Gay Pride parade the before yesterday.

We were on the east side at the start of the parade. Good fun but somewhat subdued. Then we were on the west side (Westerdok) at the terminous. Great fun. The fans were much more involved. Sitting in windows, confetti, bubbles, etc.

Better than Kingsday - that's what my boyfriend said and I have to agree with him. The parade on water was well organised and a great show. The whole afternoon wandering down the canals that are the main route for Pride was a feast...More
Had a fantastic weekend in Amsterdam celebrating pride festival with our friends. Make sure you find a sport early and bring food and drinks. You'll be there for 4 hours at least watching the floats go by.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
