EuroPride is a pan-European international LGBTI event featuring a Pride parade, hosted by a different European city each year

WorldPride / EuroPride 2026 Amsterdam

When WorldPride takes place in Europe, convention has developed that it will also be designated as the EuroPride for that year. This happened in London in 2012, Madrid in 2017, Copenhagen in 2021, and now in Amsterdam in 2026. Amsterdam will take the EuroPride title from Lisbon in 2025! Amsterdam is known as a city of tolerance. With 180 nationalities it’s the most diverse city in the world. The diversity is also related to the city’s strong and vivid LGBTQIA+ community, which belongs to Amsterdam and strengthens its atmosphere of tolerance and creativity. It was in 2001 that the world’s first same-sex marriage was conducted by their former mayor. They are proud of this fact and in 2026 we will celebrate 25 years of marriage equality. Nowadays, tolerance for and freedom of the LGBTQIA+ community is not widespread. Therefore, the city of Amsterdam has put serious effort into protecting the community. Each summer, the whole city celebrates Pride, and the aim is to promote their meaningful event on a larger scale, and WorldPride 2026 will be the perfect opportunity for this.
