Pride Park

On Saturday 29 July the Vondelpark in Amsterdam wil be filled again with a rainbow of LGBTI activities. There is a rainbow market where you can buy the latest pride gadgets and get information from a large variety of organizations and associations.

Sporty people can join one of the many sport clinics, such self-defense, rugby or volleyball. On the program for the women we have a soccer tournament and they can drink tea with Aunt Gre on the prelie.

The youth has their own area where they can meet, dance and play all kinds of games. The ‘Openlucht Theater’ is the heart of the festival and will offer performances of artists like Shary-An, Lois, Lane, Sjors van der Panne and of course Anita Meyer!

The Pride Walk

Prior to the Pride Park we will start with the Pride Walk, the opening of this year’s Amsterdam Pride. The starting point is the ‘Homomonument’ at the Westerkerk and we will meet up there. From the Homomonument we wil march to the Pride Park (Vondelpark) via the City Centre of Amsterdam. With the slogan ‘Marching with Pride’ everyone is welcome to join. Guided by music, flags, banners and much more, everyone will get the space to express their message.

With the Pride Walk we are supporting all the LGBTI’s all over the world who can’t join us. Especially for those who are living in one of the 76 countries where being LGBTI is still a criminal offense.

At noon we leave the Homomonument and hope that the first people will arrive at the Pride Park around 1 p.m. At the Pride Park the Amsterdam Pride 2017 will officially be opened.

Organizations that wish to walk with the Pride Walk with a group of anything else, have to sign up. You can sign up with Hans Verhoeven via hansverhoeven@amsterdamgaypride.org.
