Although the Pride is coming to a close and many will return home on Sunday evening, for those staying longer, there are still many diverse events taking place throughout the city for you to enjoy. Take a look at some highlights below! 

Amsterdam Pride programme

The official Amsterdam Pride programme will run from 27 July – 4 August 2019 at various locations around the city. In Amsterdam, Pride is a city-wide event with more than 170 activities taking place during the week. The diverse listing includes events that are open to everyone, but the focus remains on the issues and role of LGBTQ+ identities in society. 

Partner programme

Partners, friends and guests are of course welcome to join us! The registration and check-in drinks on Thursday, Friday night pride parties and Saturday Canal Parade are free and open to all those who wish to join.

For the tournament on Saturday, partners, friends and guests are asked to register and a small fee is requested in order to cover the lunch and organisation costs. Partners and friends are also welcome (and encouraged!) to join the farewell brunch on Sunday at the same cost as for the players. You can indicate where and when your partner(s) or guest(s) will be joining in the registration form.
