This Saturday, 16 June, the Utrecht canals will turn pink again with the famousUtrecht Canal Pride. This year they go all the way with extra street parties and after parties. What else do you want?
At two o’clock in the afternoon the Pride starts, under the motto ‘Proud of you’. Then more than 40 boats from the LGBTI community pass through the Oudegracht, each with their own statement. After the unmissable parade, you can continue partying at four free Utrecht Canal Pride street parties.
Body Talk and Café Kalff, the most famous gay cafés of Utrecht, organize an extravagant street party on Domplein from 2 pm to 11 pm. You can dance and enjoy performances and DJ sets.
RUBBER, the monthly gay club party in Utrecht, ensures that you can throw your dance legs off. With DJ sets from The G-team, Mc Divine and all RUBBER resident DJs, RUBBER gives the start of a night full of surprises. Start at 2:00 PM, be there!
At the Midzomergracht festival Village at the Stadsschouwburg you can party until 8 pm. DJs from famous Utrecht parties will make your evening one that you will never forget. You discover new dance moves that you didn’t even know existed.
