Stockholm is currently covered with rainbow colours; EuroPride 2018 is here – the largest Pride festival in Scandinavia, filled with events, parties, and activities!
Thousands upon thousands of people are in Stockholm for the Pride festival to support the LGBTIQ community this week. Let’s go through the schedule so you don’t miss out on the best events!
Let’s break it down
Stockholm Pride is organizing EuroPride 2018. The whole city is decorated with rainbow flags, but there are three significant attractions you want to keep track off:
- EuroPride House (30/7 to 3/8) – Held at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern at Sergels Torg. Here you can attend plays at the theatre, art, debates, presentations, seminars, and exhibitions, as well as the Human Rights Conference on Friday, the 3rd of August. More info here!
- EuroPride Park (1/8 to 5/8) – Situated at Östermalms IP. With 90 stalls and 14 restaurants and bars, this park will be filled with activities from the afternoon into the night. This is also where you’ll find the Kinky Quarters and the Rainbow Stage. More info here!
- EuroPride Parade (4/8) – Starting at Kungsholmstorg at 1 pm, 13.00, and marches through the city, a 4,5 km walk, to Östermalms IP. It’s the same route as last year and will take approximately 2 hours. About 60 000 participants are expected this year. More info here!
When & Where? – the Program
A lot is going on all over the city during EuroPride 2018 in Stockholm; too much to concentrate into one list. So, the best way to navigate through all of the events and decide which ones you’d like to attend is to have a look through the complete program here. There, everything is listed, and it’s easy to see when and where to go, as well as what kind of pass is required for each particular event.
Pride is here to raise awareness about the LGBTIQ community. For far too long, people from the LGBTIQ community have suffered from oppression and segregation, and every year we remind everyone in this world to show their respect and acceptance towards everyone, no matter what their sexual orientation is. It’s not up to anyone else but ourselves to decide what we like and how we want to live.
So, go and explore EuroPride 2018 in Stockholm and show that you care for your values and respect others!
