Copenhagen Pride Parade


Pride Parade August 19th, 2016 13:00 / 1 pm

More Infos:

True to tradition the Parade takes place on the last day of Pride Week and thus marks "the beginning of the end" prior to the show on the Copenhagen City Hall Square.
The parade route
The route from previous years is repeated once again this year: From Frederiksberg Town Hall via Vesterbrogade to Copenhagen City Hall Square. Departure from Frederiksberg at 13:00 / 1pm

Planned stops along the way

In spite of valiant efforts to keep the parade together, we experience time and time again the parade splitting up into segments - gaps simply appear. This endangers participant safety (because of cars attempting to cut in or cross) and it is not a very audience friendly spectacle either. For that reason and according to suggestion from the police, we have planned stops along the way. The front section of the parade in particular should thus expect to be directed to stop for 5-10 minutes several times along the way. We hope that this will close any gaps and increase the density of the parade.

That being said, we also ask all participants to keep moving at all times when possible. We understand it may be tempting to stop and pose for photographers to show off the result of months spent labouring over your costume or the like. Step aside and let the parade pass if you want to have pictures taken. Otherwise, it is not just you who has to catch up with the people in front of you afterwards - the 25-35.000 people BEHIND you also have to catch up! We know from exprience that this creates gaps very easily; it is a safety hazard and it ruins the overall impression of the parade.
So - pretty please: Don't stop!!
